Our movement is a political force, drawing energy and voice from millions of members. With the right tools, credit unions in the Carolinas engage in direct, effective action that gets noticed.
Today’s political climate demands a balanced approach. Positions of principle that are worthy alone are convincing when presented en masse by committed individuals. To be the best advocates at every level we look for leverage at every angle, backed by our unequivocal integrity as "people helping people." These primary political methods give us strong footing for every stance.
The objective of the Credit Union Grassroots Network is to utilize the potential power that credit union employees and members have as voters to influence legislators’ actions at times crucial to the credit union industry. Credit unions must invest some degree of political power in credit union legislative and regulatory goals in order to help ensure the future of credit unions. It is important for all credit unions to be involved when there is a call to action on issues on both the state and federal levels.

Project Zip Code
Project Zip Code (PZC) is a software program created by CUNA to match credit union members to their legislative districts at both the federal and state levels based upon their zip code. PZC numbers allow credit unions to show the potential of their political influence by providing elected officials a count of credit union members by district.

Political Action Committee (PAC)
