ICUL Unveils New Online Advocacy Training for Credit Union Employees
As the front line of credit unions, employees are viewed as valued voices and resources by elected officials. ICUL has developed a new online advocacy training course for employees and board members to learn the importance of advocacy and how easy it is to contact an elected official with credit union news.

Use this link to share the advocacy training course with your credit union colleagues and board members, enabling everyone from any level of your credit union to participate and be proud of the credit union movement. As financial institutions heavily regulated by the state and federal levels of government, it is imperative that credit union representatives make their voices heard on important issues so we can continue to serve and improve the financial lives of Iowans.
