The viewpoint expressed by Claude R. Marx in the Sept. 21 issue [Marx on Capitol: “Need More Moneyball, People Power”] makes some strong points as to how credit unions might achieve their longtime goal of raising the member business lending cap. Marx is right on the money when he said that credit unions “need to step up their game.”

I agree with Coach Marx when he correctly points out that CUNA’s GAC and NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus are excellent opportunities to hike the hill and visit congressman and senators and tell them what credit unions do. Congressman need to hear the credit unions tell their stories in order for them to understand that credit unions provide financial services to help 91 million Americans every day. But a visit to Washington once or twice a year will not, cannot and has not got the job done despite years of trying. There are countless business lending success stories that exist across America. Few congressman or senators are even aware of them.
