The Northwest Credit Union Association’s Regulatory Advocacy team works with Oregon, Washington and federal regulators to advocate around the development and implementation of new rules and regulations. Our goal is to help ease the regulatory burden on credit unions and strike a fair balance between consumer interests and credit union compliance. The Association actively encourages our members to participate in the regulatory process in order to better ensure the development of reasonable regulations.
Once a new rule has been finalized, the Association assists member credit unions with their compliance efforts. The Association currently employs several attorneys and seasoned compliance staff dedicated to shaping, influencing, and helping interpret new regulatory responsibilities for our member credit unions.

Federal agencies are required to submit a list of regulations that they are considering addressing over the next 12 months to the Regulatory Information Service Center and the Executive Office of Management and Budget twice per year. View future regulatory actions here.
The Association’s Regulatory Advocacy staff produces comment letters directed to key regulators & policy makers on issues with an operational impact on credit unions.
CUNA has compiled materials, resources and the latest information on pressing regulatory issues facing credit unions which you can view here.
Policy objectives represent long-term positions adopted by the Association on legislative issues. Position papers are summary documents used to address and summarize legislative issues important to credit unions.
The Credit Union Advocates program welcomes credit union staff, board members and volunteers whose purpose is to build an active "army" of credit union advocates for various political and legislative tasks like meeting and lobbying legislators, writing and reporting on Credit Union Advocates activities in newsletters and at chapter meetings, and organizing letter-writing campaigns on targeted legislative issues.
