Together Everyone Achieves More
Where Vision Meets Teamwork
The mission of the Texas Credit Union League is to protect credit unions, and promote their growth, strength and unity. Here's a review of the activities that make up the League.
Legislative and Political Advocacy
The Legislative Department lobbies on behalf of credit unions to preserve the federal tax status, the insurance fund, field of membership legislation, bankruptcy reform and other critical issues. It guards credit union rights at the state level, voices support for an independent regulator, directs grassroots activities (including campaign schools and Hike the Hill visits) and distributes legislative alerts.
Texas makes one of the largest commitments to the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee at the national level and this department administers the Texas Credit Union Political Action Committee on the state level. In a recent election cycle, this department distributed almost $200,000 to pro-credit union Texas legislators and candidates.
Regulatory and Compliance
The Regulatory and Compliance Department stays abreast of federal and state regulations and proposals. It works with credit unions daily to provide answers to compliance inquiries and operations questions. This department also produces the Texas-specific "Credit Union Compliance Manual" for federal and state credit unions, available on disk or online.
