Meet Your State Lawmakers by Joining Credit Union Days at the Capitol
Posted by Katy Wagnon on December 13, 2022
Your voice makes a difference when lawmakers consider legislation that could either help or threaten credit unions’ services to members. When you share stories about your community impact, services, and other ways you are helping their constituents, it’s a game-changer. Join the GoWest team for YOUR Credit Union Day at the Capitol in 2023 – an opportunity to meet with many of your key elected officials in person and share why it’s important for them to support the Credit Union Movement.
You’ll be armed with groundbreaking data to support the stories you will share with legislators. This year, an analysis detailing credit unions’ impact on your state’s economy has been performed by renowned economists at ECONorthwest, the largest economic firm in the region. Its team is respected by major industries, elected officials, the media, and other key stakeholders. In addition, credit unions’ financial wellness mission will be well documented in a comprehensive community impact report detailing special lending services, volunteerism, and more.
Participating is easy! The GoWest team has already arranged time with local legislators in each state, and we will provide the advocacy training you need to make a lasting impression. Simply sign up and we will update you along the way.
