“Working closely with our legislators helps provide perspective on how proposals and current legislation affects credit unions and our ability to serve our members,” said Murphy. “We build these relationships over time by meeting with legislators, sharing our stories of people helping people, and by showcasing all the good works by all credit unions across Wisconsin.”

Murphy extended a thank you to Senator Kathy Bernier and Representative Donna Rozar for taking time to visit with MMCCU and counterparts.
