More than 20 Credit Union leaders participated in the Association’s Hike the Hill last week. They visited the offices of all 11 members of the Maryland and DC Congressional delegation. Their message: the importance of preserving the credit union tax status, the need for common sense regulations to protect members and consumers, and data security. They also shared the great work credit unions do to support their communities, including the Annual Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run which directly benefits both Children’s National Medical Center in DC and Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Maryland.  

“Thank you to all who participated in Hike the Hill,” said John Bratsakis, President/CEO, MD|DC Credit Union Association. “It’s incredibly important for Congress to hear directly from credit union leaders in a tangible way, how regulations are impacting consumers. Together we will continue to build and strengthen our relationships on Capitol Hill and reinforce what the credit union difference means.”
