Stronger Together: The Importance of Advocacy
A survey of more than 600 Iowa credit union members said they want to know more about legislative issues and candidates, regardless of party affiliation, that affect the way they save, borrow and manage money.
The Iowa Credit Union League evaluates state and federal candidates who have best exemplified the positive advancement of credit union issues. This is based on a candidate's record on important consumer finance issues, positive history of credit union interaction and answers to a credit union questionnaire the league sends to all candidates. Dupaco is chartered in and affected by Iowa law, thus focuses on candidates in that state.
