ICBA is calling on community bankers to urge their members of Congress to investigate the troubling trend of large credit unions buying up community banks.
Community bankers can use ICBA's Be Heard grassroots action center to send in custom messages asking lawmakers to use their oversight authority to rein in credit union abuses.
Meanwhile, ICBA continues encouraging community bankers to send in examples of credit unions' egregious actions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Community bankers can also access ICBA's customizable op-ed and talking points to raise awareness of the acquisition trend and its cost to taxpayers in local news media.
ICBA issued the resources following its launch of the ICBA Credit Union Task Force, which followed an American Banker op-ed by ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey on the credit union acquisition issue.
