Awesome Advocacy Event Connects Colorado Young Professionals, Legislators
Posted by Katie March on January 26, 2024
This week your GoWest team was proud to support the Colorado Young Credit Union Professionals in two advocacy events: a virtual training on “Effective Advocacy” and an incredibly successful evening event with legislators called “Legislative Libations”.
With over 40 credit union advocates and eight legislators in attendance, the event provided us with a platform for meaningful conversations about credit unions and advocacy with our local legislators. The event was sponsored by our young professionals, but credit union professionals of all ages – the young and the “young at heart” – were encouraged to attend.
The passion and engagement from both our elected officials and credit union advocates was inspiring to see. Building these connections will lead to success in this legislative session and allow us to build a grassroots movement at the Capitol to show elected officials the Credit Union Difference.
Thanks to those who attended the training before the event and previous GoWest trainings, legislators walked away with a full picture of Credit Union’s structure, value, and impact as well as an understanding of how current legislation will benefit both the state of Colorado and their local credit unions.
The event was a huge success thanks to those who attended and especially to the YCUP board for planning, running, and speaking at the event. We also appreciate the efforts of Lexy Strong on the GoWest team for supporting our incredible young professionals. We look forward to seeing all of you on February 22 at our Colorado Day at the Capitol event. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so, here and now!
