New MAP Community to Enhance Advocacy Coordination
Wednesday, July 11, 2018 6:55 AM

Credit Union National Association launched a new online community this week for its Member Activation Program (MAP), a forum where credit union industry professionals can discuss advocacy issues, communications, best practices, and exchange ideas and resources to better advocate for credit unions. The MAP Community is a free community for CUNA members, and it is available to all CUNA members.

"We are delighted about the potential for this new MAP Community," said Cornerstone Credit Union League VP Political Affairs Gretchen Ziegler. "The forum will be a great place for new users to bounce ideas off more experienced users who can help take the mystery out of MAP. FAQs are great, but firsthand conversations are really valuable. We see MAP as one the best ways to increase engagement among credit unions and between credit unions and their legislators, and it reaffirms the difference we can make in terms of legislative and regulatory accomplishments."

The CUNA MAP Community is designed as a resource for credit union advocates to:

  • Learn about advocacy efforts;
  • Connect with their peers;
  • Seek advice;
  • Ask questions;
  • Aid others;
  • Participate in discussion topics;
  • Search a collaborative file library for on-the-go resources; and
  • Share ideas and resources.

“Finding time to connect and stay up-to-date with the latest credit union advocacy efforts can be difficult, which is why we’re launching this community,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “The new MAP Community is the only forum in the credit union industry that gives place to discuss member advocacy efforts and communications as well as advocacy best practices for credit unions. I encourage all credit unions to participate in this resource and consider joining our Member Activation Program as we look to build off the major advocacy victories we’ve seen this year.”
