FOCUS New York
It’s no secret: the New York credit union movement is a powerful advocacy force with a proven track record when it comes to government affairs. But before we can even think about taking a stand on legislation, we need to ensure political candidates who support the credit union mission have the resources they need to run for office.
That’s where our political action committee comes into play.
FOCUS NY is New York’s credit union political action committee. Individual contributions to FOCUS NY are directed in a bipartisan manner to help elect candidates for state office who support a pro-credit union agenda and reflect the ideals and values of the credit union movement. Contributions to FOCUS NY help protect the interests of credit unions in New York and ensure that credit unions have a voice in state government.
Political action is one area where we simply cannot afford to go it alone. By supporting FOCUS NY, you’re supporting the collective viability and success of our movement — and your credit union.
