League Legislative Receptions in Roanoke, Richmond Draw Dozens of Lawmakers, 100 CU Champions

Your League’s legislative receptions this week in Roanoke and Richmond drew more than 100 credit union supporters and two dozen lawmakers and political candidates.

Credit unions and the League have hosted a series of legislative receptions across the Commonwealth this summer as we prepare for Congress to reconvene – possibly with a fight on interchange legislation on the horizon – and as we gear up for an unprecedented statewide election that will see dozens of new lawmakers join the Virginia General Assembly.

“Advancing our legislative agenda starts with building a good working relationship with legislators and policymakers,” said Virginia Credit Union League President/CEO Carrie Hunt. “These legislative receptions provide us the opportunity to connect lawmakers and credit unions, showcase the good work of credit unions in serving their members and communities, and build awareness of the issues that matter most to us.”
