"It is important for credit unions to have a strong presence on Capitol Hill. It is especially powerful when local constituents go to Washington, D.C.," said Dan Plauda, ICUL President/Chief Executive Officer. "Our political success over the years has been due in large part to organized events to educate lawmakers about credit unions. These Hill events are opportunities for attendees to visit their federal lawmakers to maintain a strong political and regulatory future." We appreciate your continued support and participation in our programs. We look forward to seeing you in Washington! Upcoming Events Check out "Dates" for details about other upcoming events.
