Still Time to RSVP: Credit Union Day at the General Assembly Jan. 18

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.

CALL TO ACTION: Write State Lawmakers in Support of Credit Union Legislation
