March 2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of the historic march in Selma, Ala., known as “Bloody Sunday.” Much to its credit, the movie “Selma” depicting that same march has propelled the national dialogue regarding voter rights and discrimination back into the forefront of our nation’s social consciousness.

For those who were old enough to cast a ballot, it was an era of poll taxes, jar bean counting and attempts to answer unfathomable questions that would leave the best of Jeopardy contestants grimacing.

Also, during the month of March, credit union delegates from across the United States will gather in Washington to march through the halls of Congress engaging in what we call “Hike the Hill.” Seeking to impact legislation affecting our institutions, members, and the credit union community at large, we stand united with one voice making the case for the protection of our members from merchant data security breaches, the preservation of our tax-exempt status, and relief from overreaching regulatory burdens to name a few.
