“Never let the number of times you’ve gone around the sun be a limit on your potential” - Ryan Donovan

Welcome to episode 61 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by our friends at CO-OP Financial Services. CO-OP is your trusted payment processing partner whose mission is to drive the credit union movement forward.

Do you think policymakers’ perception of credit unions is static? Listen as Ryan Donovan, Chief Advocacy Officer at the Credit Union National Association, and I examine the impression that policymakers still have of the credit union movement, and discuss how CUNA is working to align those perceptions with the pace of change that’s happening in our industry. We also chat about how CUNA’s approach to advocacy and public policy challenges has changed over the years. 

Ryan and I also talk about what he sees as the biggest challenges for credit unions at the advocacy level and the need to engage members in a conversation about the public policy changes facing credit unions. Ryan also shares what he feels needs to change to keep credit unions relevant going forward fundamentally, including modernizing the Federal Credit Union Charter, leveraging state league’s progress and efforts, and further promoting the great things credit unions are doing for their members and communities.  

Hit play to learn more about Ryan’s hopes for the future, past accomplishments, and leadership style, as well as his perfect day in the office. We also discuss the many mentors that have supported him from his time as a Legislative Director to now. Plus, hear about the first time he got into memorable trouble in high school, and how he was able to affect change through the situation.

If you ever wanted to know how politics on the Hill affect credit unions, this is the episode you don’t want to miss. Ryan has been there and shares his experiences. So, sit back, take notes, and enjoy!
