Advocacy and Government Relations
Advocacy and action go hand in-hand in the credit union movement. We are actively working to build and strengthen relationships among state and federal policy makers, regulators, consumer groups, and credit unions. The Montana Credit Union Network strives to coordinate a variety of events and practices that help amplify the voice of credit union philosophy and principles and increase the visibility of credit unions. All of our actions are geared toward
- Ensuring that credit unions are reflected positively and promoted actively through government and public relations, communications, and other venues.
- Maintaining and developing strong relationships with lawmakers, partner organizations, the media, credit union directors, members, and others.
- Coordinating a grassroots advocacy plan for Montana credit unions.
- Stimulating awareness among Montana credit unions about the importance of credit union political action to help make sure that policy makers—whether legislators, administrators, or regulators–understand and share credit union philosophy and principles.
