Credit Union Day at the Virginia General Assembly is this Thursday (Jan. 18), and we need you in Richmond! We're looking for at least 200 credit union champions to join us as we educate state lawmakers about the "Credit Union Difference" and fight for credit union-backed legislation. Participants: Look for an email from the League tomorrow with a finalized schedule and other information.
Can’t attend Credit Union Day? You can aid our efforts by flooding lawmakers’ offices with emails in support of our legislation!
We're lobbying for a measure to provide credit unions with the authority to hold public deposits (HB 1205). Please encourage staff, officials and members to contact their lawmakers, as well!
We’re engaged with federal lawmakers as Congress finds itself facing a partial government shutdown on Friday, absent new action to fund the government.
"While credit unions will step up to aid members in the event of a partial government shutdown, we continue to actively engage with lawmakers in hopes such a scenario can be avoided," said League President/CEO Carrie Hunt.
The NCUA Board will meet on Jan. 18 to consider two items: a Board briefing on NCUA’s 2024-2026 Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility strategic plan and a discussion of NCUA’s 2024 Annual Performance Plan.
This will be the first official meeting for new Board member Tanya Otsuka, who was sworn in earlier this month. We’ve sent our congratulations to Otsuka and noted that we look forward to working with her on a host of issues important to our credit unions.
We’re proud to announce our schedule for IGNITE | League Annual Meeting! Registration is now open for our premier networking and education event, which is being held May 1-3 on the waterfront in Washington, D.C. at InterContinental (The Wharf).
We'll examine the importance of fostering an inclusive mindset in the workplace and how that helps us grow as individuals and support others. An inclusive, engaged environment improves our ability to recruit and retain top talent; aids us in navigating conflict; and fosters innovative, high-performing, and highly productive organizations. Location: Richmond.
