Past Action We’ve Taken
When credit union members from across the country come together, it can be very powerful. Previous action we have taken to speak out on behalf of credit unions include:
Speaking Out Against Regulatory Burdens
Since 2010, credit unions have been forced to spend $1.7 billion on unnecessary new regulations. On average, these regulatory burdens cost you $71 per year. That’s why we joined credit union members from across the country to ask our U.S. Senators and Representatives to protect credit unions from these regulations.
Protecting the Middle Class during the 2016 Presidential Primaries
This effort was about reaching out to all of the presidential candidates and making sure that the economic issues middle class credit union members care about most were covered during debates.
Stopping the Data Breaches
In 2013, credit unions banded together to fight against being stuck with costs of data breaches to help consumers and members protect their finances. Data breaches can have expensive consequences, so this campaign aimed to help protect credit unions from covering the costs from data breaches that they were not responsible for. 900 Suncoast members contacted Capitol Hill to help this cause.
Don’t Tax My Credit Union
Credit unions reached out to Congress during this effort to ask them not to raise taxes for 96 million credit union members across the country and to preserve financial choice for American consumers. A total of 4,100 Suncoast members reached out to Capitol Hill to make their voice heard.
