#205: Credit unions and politics: oil and water or peanut butter and jelly? NAFCU's Katie Marisic explains...
NAFCU's Vice President of Political Affairs Katie Marisic rubs shoulders and twists the arms (just kidding) of today's decision makers on Capitol Hill to promote the credit union way with our nation's representatives -- who may not be too current on the cooperative credit union movement. That said, Katie just might have one of the coolest jobs in all of credit union land. Armed with her experience, she joins us on CUbroadcast to provide some helpful tips on how credit unions can up the ante with their political activity.
To prove how effective credit unions can be on the Hill, Katie also provides a number of CU success stories along with why its vital the industry needs to get its message across this year -- a non-election year. We also touch on Dodd-Frank, CFBP, and more in this filled-to-the-brim discussion on credit unions, politics, and your participation. This episode is great timing, as NAFCU's upcoming Congressional Caucus Conference occurs in Washington, D.C., September 8-11, 2013. Time to storm the Hill. Check it out!
