Advocacy involves credit union members, professionals, and volunteers educating and influencing political candidates, elected officials, and industry regulators. Whether our advocacy goals include inducing change, protecting our tax status, or reducing regulations, credit unions must continue to advocate at all levels of government.

- Attend a CUNA or League sponsored advocacy event like the GAC, Jam the Unicam, or Hike the Hill.
- Contribute to CULAC or NCULPAC, which are the PACs of Nebraska credit unions.
- Attend local events hosted by political candidates or lawmakers such as town hall meetings.
- Join and participate in local civic, philanthropic, or business organizations such as Chambers of Commerce.
