CUNA to host interchange audio conference on April 13
04/08/2011 04:00 pm
CUNA CEO Bill Cheney will be holding a national teleconference on the debit card interchange issue this Wednesday, April 13 at 3 p.m. Eastern. This is an important call. Legislation to delay debit interchange is at a critical juncture on Capitol Hill, and further credit union involvement is needed to gain passage before the July 21 statutory implementation date.
On Wednesday’s call CUNA intends to provide a brief on:
The very latest legislative, political and regulatory developments from Washington on interchange
The importance of activating the credit union membership on the issue as soon as possible, and the resources available
New social media strategies (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) to be aware of that will further help engage a credit union’s members
CUNA’s national call, which is free, will take no more than 30 minutes (this briefing will not include Q&A because of the large number of participants). Credit unions need to register in advance by clicking

There are a number of major issues in Washington of concern to credit unions: member business lending, supplemental capital, and credit unions’ regulatory burden among them. These continue to be CUNA and league priorities. But events on interchange demand near-term action, which again is the reason for Wednesday’s national briefing.
