Spending a few days in the nation’s capital is an outstanding opportunity for all credit union advocates, but especially young professionals who are exposed to the advocacy process for the first time. All attendees will have an opportunity to visit with congressional representatives and key credit union regulatory agencies.

The legislative issues of focus for this Hike the Hill include regulatory relief, protecting against data breaches, and preserving the credit union tax exemption. Credit union advocates will also be meeting with representatives from key regulatory agencies, specifically the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, National Credit Union Administration, and the Treasury Department. 

The Hike the Hill event will begin with a welcome reception at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26. Tuesday morning, June 27, will begin with a legislative and regulatory briefing, followed by Capitol Hill visits. On Wednesday, June 28, we will wrap up the event with regulatory visits.
