Governmental Affairs

Join Your Chapter To Meet With State Legislators

Here is a list of the CU Day events:

  • Jan. 20: Roanoke Valley and Southwest
  • Jan. 21: NoVA & Piedmont
  • Jan. 22: Hampton Roads and Tidewater
  • Jan. 27: Richmond and Southside
  • Jan. 28: Central Virginia

We plan to introduce two bills on behalf of credit unions: One would allow credit unions and other financial institutions to offer prize-linked savings accounts and the other would exclude ATMs from the definition of service facilities as related to establishing, moving or closing offices.

If you plan on attending please let your Chapter legislator know or contact your League's Director of Governmental Affairs, Karin Sherbin, at 800.768.3344, ext. 626 or ksherbin@vacul.org.


Understanding Our Advocacy Mission

We need lawmakers in office who will help create a positive legislative and regulatory environment for Virginia’s credit unions. While your League represents credit unions day in and day out, there is no substitute for constituent input.

There are many ways for you to be politically involved. On the following pages, you can keep up with governmental affairs news, learn what you can do to be involved, gain access to legislators and legislation, and learn the importance of your financial contributions.

Contact your League's Director of Governmental Affairs, Karin Sherbin, at 800.768.3344, ext. 626 or ksherbin@vacul.org for information.
