Massachusetts Legislative Advocacy
The Association’s legislative effort is focused on the twin tasks of preserving an environment that is conducive to the success of Massachusetts’ credit unions and helping credit unions function within that environment.
The Association acts as an advocate for the credit unions of Massachusetts, making certain that the needs of credit unions and their members are well known and clearly understood to the lawmakers who draft the laws which govern the operation of credit unions. That proactive position involves formulating and drafting legislation that allows credit unions to continue in their role as an effective and friendly financial resource for consumers. Defending credit unions from legislative assaults mounted by competitors seeking to use the Legislature in order to gain advantages in the marketplace is an equally important function.

State Advocacy Day
Massachusetts Credit Union Day is held in two year cycles to coincide with the cycle of the General Court in the State House. The day is officially declared Credit Union Day in the Commonwealth by the Governor to increase the visibility of the valuable work of credit unions across the state in the public arena. The program includes legislative speakers and begins and concludes with individual Hill visits at which both the House and Senate are briefed on the Association’s legislative priorities by credit unions. The program also launches a series of follow-up visits and communication with lawmakers in local credit unions and districts.
