Priority #1: Defend and Promote Credit Union Interests
Legislative & regulatory advocacy is our main priority. Our ongoing advocacy efforts help protect credit union’s interests and remove barriers that impede delivery of services to credit union members.
Together with the Credit Union National Association, the Mississippi Credit Union Association represents the interests of Mississippi’s credit unions with federal and state elected officials and helps credit unions stay informed of key legislative issues in Washington, D.C., and Mississippi. We regularly communicate with and attend events for both federal and state elected officials in order to develop, nurture, and maintain relationships with our elected officials and share with them the voice of Mississippi credit unions.
We do the same on the regulatory advocacy front too, representing the interests of Mississippi credit unions with state and federal regulators. Our staff gathers information from credit unions to help formulate regulatory policy and respond to proposals. MSCUA also submits comment letters providing regulatory authorities with credit union views on selected issues related to existing and proposed regulations at the state and federal levels.
