In a recent article published in CU Times, David Baumann writes of a conversation he had with a credit union lobbyist who works for one of the national credit union trade organizations. In response to a question as to why credit unions have not had any face time with President Trump, the lobbyist responded, “I am not concerned about access to this administration.” When asked if his association has sought a meeting with the President, he responded, “We’ve had a lot of contact with the administration during the last several months. I’m going to leave it at that.”  Translated one may take that to mean they have not returned our calls.

Remember now, this was an executive of a national trade organization discounting the importance of sitting down with the President of the United States to discuss the issues that face credit unions and the millions of individuals who belong to those financial institutions.
