Credit Union Day at the General Assembly: 170 CU Advocates Joining Us at the Capitol on Thursday!

Authored By: Lewis Wood on 1/17/2023

More than 170 credit union advocates representing 38 credit unions from across the Commonwealth will gather at the state Capitol on Thursday for Credit Union Day at the General Assembly.

Credit Union Day is our premier state-level advocacy event. We'll share credit unions' service to members and our communities with lawmakers; lobby our Senators for support of HB1727, our digital assets custody services bill; and thank House members for supporting and passing HB1727. 

The House passed our bill on Wednesday (Jan. 18). It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

"We're delighted to have so many credit union advocates joining us this week in Richmond!" says League President/CEO Carrie Hunt. "Credit Union Day is a unique opportunity to highlight the 'Credit Union Difference' and educate lawmakers about what makes us the best choice for financial services for millions of Virginians." 

Here are things to know for Credit Union Day!
