Everything You Wanted to Know About MAP... Now You Can Ask

Annual Meeting Breakout Event Featuring Expert MAP Panel with Jim Phelps

Did you know that some of the most powerful lobbying groups in DC are the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the National Rifle Association (NRA), yet they have only a fraction of the members that credit unions have? It's true. So, imagine, if credit unions have 105 million members, and it takes only a fraction of them getting engaged to boost our voices even more loudly in Congress and state legislatures, how much more successful would our industry be? A lot!

Indeed, the credit union system’s greatest resource is membership, and that's why CUNA's Member Activation Program (MAP) is so powerful. If you've ever wondered how MAP works, why it's critical to the Credit Union Movement, and how you can get involved, your chance to learn is next week at the Cornerstone Credit Union League's 2017 Annual Meeting.

And, hey, it's not too late to register!
This year's Annual Meeting takes place in Fort Worth, Texas, April 11-13.

Learn more.

During his breakout session, "The Power of Membership – Member Activation Program (MAP)," Cornerstone's Chief Advocacy Officer Jim Phelps will lead a panel of experts who will discuss the campaign in depth. Check it out April 11 at 4 p.m.

Learn how credit unions in the Cornerstone region are using MAP to communicate about education and advocacy to their members and how participation in MAP can create not only stronger bonds with members but more business for the institution.

Two credit union CEOs from Oklahoma and Texas will participate on the panel, as well as CUNA's Trey Hawkins, VP political affairs, who helped with the research, design, and development of the MAP program, which is part of CUNA's Common-Sense Regulation.

Here are just some entertaining videos that highlight some of the unintended consequences (and absurdities) of overregulation.
