CUs, League Host 15 Lawmakers, Candidates at NoVA-Area Legislative Reception

Credit unions and the League continued a successful series of statewide Legislative Receptions last night with an event in northern Virginia that drew 50 credit union advocates and 15 elected officials and candidates from across the region. The event was hosted by Northwest Federal Credit Union in Herndon.

"The Congressional August district work period offers us a unique opportunity to reach our lawmakers at home, enabling those lawmakers to reconnect with credit union constituents and hear directly from us about our top-of-mind issues," said League President/CEO Carrie Hunt. "Adding to the importance of this year's legislative events is the critical state-level elections that will usher in a very different General Assembly in 2024."
