Advocacy

First and foremost, the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas is an advocacy organization.  Advocacy helps shape the views of our lawmakers and opinion leaders as well as developing and implementing measurable steps toward moving members of Congress and our state and local leaders to support the credit union movement.

Our highest priority is to provide representation for credit unions at all levels (local and federal governing bodies) that will help strengthen and promote a favorable credit union environment throughout the Dakotas.

The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas is the backbone of the credit union movement in our two states’ political advocacy efforts.  This is accomplished through developing a communication strategy that focuses on education and awareness.
