Support The Credit Union Movement!
July is CULAC month in the world of Credit Unions, but what does that mean?
CULAC stands for the Credit Union Legislative Action Council, they work to influence our leaders in Washington DC to protect the rights – and the very existence – of Credit Unions against the powerful lobbyists from banks.
This year, we are encouraging our members to donate via “Thanks A Latte”, which asks you to donate $3 or more to CULAC. To make donating easy, we have “Thanks A Latte” boxes and envelopes in every branch of WaunaCU for that purpose.
Wauna Credit Union strongly supports CULAC and their grassroots efforts to keep Credit Unions alive, thriving, and part of the fabric of America. Please support this organization if you can.

From the CUNA Website (http://www.cuna.org/Grassroots-And-Political-Action/CULAC/What-Is-CULAC):
CULACs purpose, as defined in its Articles of Association, is to “provide the opportunity for individuals interested in the future of the credit union movement to contribute to the support of worthy candidates for federal office who believe, and have demonstrated their belief, in the principles to which the industry is dedicated.”
CULAC accomplishes its mission by contributing to and supporting federal candidates and committees that support the Credit Union Movement. It is your continued involvement, support and dedication that provides us with the resources to elect credit union advocates to Congress.
