MCUL & Affiliates grassroots events are great opportunities for you to share your experiences and speak to the importance of your credit union to state and federal lawmakers. This fall, MCUL is making a major push for the “Don’t Tax My Credit Union” campaign in Washington on Oct. 1. Participation in this October fly-in is more important than ever, with Congress raising comprehensive tax reform this past spring. There is no registration fee for this Hike the Hill fly-in.
