Credit unions connect with Treasurer Sprague, and PACs set fundraising record

Building and maintaining strong personal relationships is a critical component of a successful advocacy effort. That is why the League was thrilled to host Treasurer of State Robert Sprague at this year’s inVest48 PAC Happy Hour. Treasurer Sprague spoke of the great public-private partnerships his office is focused on through the various linked-deposit programs, including the newest, Family Forward. The Family Forward program seeks to make adoption more affordable for Ohio families, and the first two financial institutions to participate in the program were credit unions, both of which Treasurer Sprague highlighted as they were in the room.

That passion for advocacy reverberated in results as the League’s PACs set an all-time fundraising record for inVest48 with more than $6,000 raised! A huge thank you to all of those who contributed. If you were unable to attend or contribute at i48 but want to do your part and boost the League PACs, you can make an online contribution here.

Expanded telemarketing rules impact member outreach

The credit union difference is best activated when credit unions can freely connect with their member-owners without regulatory inference. That's why your League responded to a recent Federal Trade Commission (FTC) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing expanded call records and record retention requirements that would inhibit credit union member outreach efforts. As prudentially regulated, member-owned financial cooperatives, credit unions already comply with a federal and state regulatory framework wrapped around member outreach.
