Project Zip Code 

Project Zip Code. Show the Credit Union Strength, run it today.Project Zip Code (PZC) is a user friendly, secure computer program that counts your members and matches them by congressional district, state legislative district and county. These counts are then uploaded to CUNA's Project Zip Code website and combined with data from other credit unions nationwide. Many credit union members reside in states other than the state in which their credit union is domiciled. This is why it's important that all credit unions participate; without full participation we can't get a clear picture of our grassroots strength! Project Zip Code aids in federal and state advocacy efforts and participation provides operational benefits. Credit unions can view credit union members by geographic area, which can be useful in placing ATMs and branches. 

Your information is confidential and secure with Project Zip Code. No personally identifiable data or individual information leaves your computer. Project Zip Code receives only the counts of records successfully matched by the program.

Trips to DC

Meeting with our Congressmen and their staff is an important part of the GAC. Here's
our group with Senator Jon Tester after our visit with him on February 24, 2016.

GAC—CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference is the only credit union governmental affairs conference of its kind. This annual event offers the opportunity to network with peers, hear from key legislative and political leaders, and experience a variety of breakout sessions on credit union hot issues. GAC also offers the largest exhibit hall for credit unions, with a wide variety of products and services for your operational needs. The 2016 GAC was February 21-25, and first-time attendee and "Crasher" Kelly Fleiner wrote a short recap of her experiences. The 2017 GAC is scheduled February 26-March 2. 

Hike the Hill 
is a grassroots program designed to provide credit union advocates the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. to educate decision makers on credit union issues. When credit unions participate in Hike the Hill, they demonstrate that credit union support has a real face, real concerns, and real stories of how credit unions affect the lives of working Americans. The 2016 Hike will be Sept. 26 - 28 and included meetings with CUNA, NCUA, and our congressional offices.
