America’s Credit Unions were featured prominently at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) in Boston August 6-9. The leagues, the Cooperative Credit Union Association, and CUNA hosted a booth to increase awareness of credit unions among state lawmakers. The organizations are also focused on a campaign to serve as panelists and to attend meetings to ensure no policies arise to harm credit unions.
MD|DC Credit Union Association CEO John Bratsakis represented Maryland and Washington area credit unions, greeting state legislators at the America’s Credit Unions’ booth. Engagement at the NCSL Legislative Summit is especially important because many state legislators go on to serve at the federal level. Nearly half of the 115th Congress are former state legislators.
Awareness activities included the America’s Credit Unions logo featured on the conference wi-fi splash page, hotel key cards and conference lanyards.
