“Get engaged and stay engaged.” - Greg Mesack

Thank you for tuning in to episode 41 of The CUInsight Network, with your host, Lauren Culp, Publisher & CEO of In The CUInsight Network, we take a deeper dive with the thought leaders who support the credit union community. We discuss issues and challenges facing credit unions and identify best practices to learn and grow together.

My guest today is Greg Mesack, SVP of Government Affairs at NAFCU. The team at NAFCU advocates for credit unions nationwide by interacting with government officials and policymakers allowing credit unions to continue serving their members. Through financial advocacy, NAFCU helps protect members from financial institutions that may not have consumers’ best interest at heart. NAFCU is committed to representing, assisting, educating and defending our member credit unions to help them grow, and help grow the industry as well.

In this conversation, Greg and I talk about how credit unions are critical in this current economic state and what NAFCU is doing to protect them. Along the way, Greg discusses the Credit Card Competition Act of 2022 (CCCA), the battle between banks and retailers, rapid consolidation, and inflation. He explains how these pull resources from economically-distressed areas, especially rural and inner city communities. Greg speaks passionately about financial advocacy, and he shares how people can get involved.

As we wrap up the episode, Greg talks about Tom Brady, his hack for keeping up with sports, and the product he can’t live without. Enjoy my conversation with Greg Mesack!
