Legislative Scorecard

As advocacy is the hallmark of CCUA, a real and increased need to hold elected officials accountable exists while ensuring that members have the most up-to-date resources to do so. The most objective and accurate way to evaluate an elected official’s performance on issues important to credit unions is to track their record.

The member-exclusive Scorecard provides a unique and quality cumulative analysis indexed by policymakers in member states that no other credit union organization provides. With this Scorecard, credit union advocates have electronic access to an easy to read tool to further learn and discern which policymakers are truly champions of credit unions.
