This year’s CUNA GAC is fast approaching. Taking place Feb. 25–March 1 in Washington, D.C., credit union participants from each of Michigan’s 14 congressional districts are needed to make this a successful grassroots lobbying event for MCUL.
Scholarships through the “Michele Myrick ASFM Defense Scholarship Fund” are available for credit union leaders and volunteers interested in attending this year’s fly-in. Topics for discussion with lawmakers and regulators will include regulatory burden as well as the credit union not-for-profit tax status.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet with their congressional member’s office, in addition to participating in various CUNA sessions. Credit unions with less than $100 million in assets can apply for up to $2,500 in scholarship assistance. Those exceeding $100 million in assets can request up to $1,500 in assistance.
