Thank You Credit Union Advocates!
The 2018 Iowa Legislature has adjourned and we are happy to announce there were no changes made to credit union taxes! Thank you to those who wrote emails, sent letters and made phone calls to lawmakers reminding them of the positive difference credit unions make in our communities and the fundamental differences between banks and credit unions. Your efforts were central to our defeat of the credit union tax.
Credit union advocates made their voices heard throughout the legislative session, sending more than 40,000 emails and 2,500 handwritten letters to legislators in support of the cooperative credit union structure. In addition, nearly 800 credit union members visited the Capitol in March to rally for financial choice.
ICUL Leadership Change Announced
Iowa Credit Union League CEO Pat Jury has announced that on June 29, he will transition from the role of CEO to senior advisor supporting ICUL and AMC through 2021. A successor will be named later this month.
Pat Jury has served as president and CEO of ICUL since 2006. His 29-year tenure of accomplished service to the organization also includes 10 years as chairman of Affiliates Management Company (AMC), ICUL's holding company.
Under Pat's leadership, ICUL capital holdings grew from $20 million to $115 million, and the organization maintained 99 percent credit union affiliation.
In his 12 years as CEO, Pat's advocacy helped elevate the standing of credit unions nationally and internationally. He led successful legislation in Iowa and Washington D.C. to defend credit union tax status, and also worked to create a competitive state charter that supported membership growth. Today, Iowa has more than 1.1 million credit union members. His efforts have grown one of the strongest grassroots organizations in the state and one of Iowa's largest political action committees.
