Regulatory Advocacy

Regulatory compliance is a critical concern for credit unions.  Credit unions are subject to state and federal regulations that govern the full range of their operations.  In addition to the two primary credit union regulatory bodies, credit unions must be well informed about the regulations promulgated by a wide variety of other governmental organizations.  The League goes far beyond reporting on new initiatives, however, by taking a proactive role in assisting credit unions work with regulators to build a regulatory environment that will benefit and protect credit unions and their members.  Anticipating regulatory change, promoting dialogue between credit unions and regulators, interpreting existing regulation, and acting as an advocate for credit unions in regulatory forums are vital services delivered by the League.
