Credit Union Issues Front and Center
NAFCU's advocacy efforts garner national attention

S

ince the coronavirus pandemic
began, NAFCU has fought
for legislative and regulatory
changes to provide relief to
credit unions and their 121 million
members. In doing so, the association's
award-winning advocacy team has
kept credit union priorities in front of
lawmakers and its communication's
team helped connect credit unions to the
national media to further tell their story.

Here's a look at some notable coverage of NAFCU's efforts to voice credit
union concerns and advocate for
further relief.

February

"There is going to be an impact, but
how deep it is going to be is still too
early to be determined. It is going to
affect the GDP of countries across
the globe, not just the U.S."
DAN BERGER, NAFCU PRESIDENT AND CEO, ON CNN
INTERNATIONAL'S QUEST MEANS BUSINESS

March

NAFCU chief economist and Vice President of Research
Curt Long offered insights into the current economic situation and its eventual recovery on Fox News @ Night With
Shannon Bream. "We hadn't seen business engage in a lot
of capital investment, and that was chalked up to lingering
uncertainties [surrounding U.S.-related trade disputes].
Coming out of [the coronavirus pandemic], those uncertainties will be heightened," Long said.

April

As Congress began offering fiscal support for small businesses,
NAFCU-member credit union leaders drew attention to the
industry by sharing their experiences with the Small Business
Administration's paycheck protection program (PPP) rollout
and the technical glitches that followed.

"Outbreaks and pandemics have the
potential to have a secondary flare-up,
and those are the ones that cause the
damage from a longer-term standpoint."
BERGER ON CNN INTERNATIONAL'S QUEST MEANS BUSINESS

"The system just
kept crashing, all
day long."
MICHAEL LUSSIER, PRESIDENT
AND CEO OF WEBSTER FIRST
FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, 
ON THE HILL

"It is still clunky, it is
still slow, it is still up
or down."
RICHARD WILLIAMS, PRESIDENT
AND CEO OF ESSENTIAL FEDERAL
CREDIT UNION, ON CNN
