Advocates for Credit Unions of Tomorrow (ACT)
Political involvement throughout the credit union system is essential for the well-being and growth of credit unions. CrossState serves as the principal advocate for credit unions in New Jersey and Pennsylvania with state and federal lawmakers to protect and enhance the operations of both state and federally chartered credit unions.
ACT’s mission is to support CrossState’s advocacy efforts and the implementation of the credit union public policy agenda by increasing awareness and visibility of credit unions among policymakers and elected officials in Washington and in our state capitols, and by marshaling the grassroots strength of credit unions movement.
ACT provides credit union volunteers and professionals the opportunity to play an active role in ensuring an environment in which credit unions are able to successfully meet member needs in a changing and expanding financial services marketplace, and are able to engage opponents on an equal footing when competing for support among state and federal lawmakers.
