A group of credit union professionals from our three states joined MWCUA staff on a visit to Congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. the week of Sept. 12.
Making the trip were Alan Althouse, TruWest CU; Stephanie Teubner, Blue FCU; Todd Marksberry and Steve Ferraro, Public Service CU, and Jay Curtis, our Government Relations Committee Chairman, First CU. In addition to some of our regular delegation, the group met with Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and his key staff, the Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and Deputy Majority Whip Patrick McHenry.
The group also also met with Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman and longtime credit union champion Ed Royce. The conversations included discussing credit union issues, but also took included the opportunity to hear their plans and concerns for this Congress and what changes they anticipate after the election in November.
