Upcoming Legislative Receptions: Join Us in Roanoke, Richmond & NoVA

Authored By: League Staff on 8/11/2023

We’re excited to continue our summer series of legislative receptions all across the Commonwealth, including upcoming events in Roanoke, Richmond and NoVA! Join us in advocating for your credit union and the Virginia credit union system at an event in your area. We are working with members of Congress to schedule our final reception in Hampton Roads. We will share this date and location as soon as it's set.

"These events represent a prime opportunity to advocate for credit unions, prepare for an eventful General Election this November, and introduce credit unions to political candidates who are seeking office for the first time," notes League Chief Advocacy Officer JT Blau.

  • At the state level, we will see unprecedented turnover in the Virginia General Assembly come January and it's important that we start preparing for that change as we approach November's General Elections.
  • At the federal level, we're confronted with a number of critically important issues, including interchange; data privacy and security; and legislative and regulatory actions that are targeting programs like overdraft/courtesy pay or which seek to limit the fees credit unions charge for a variety of services.

Your participation in our advocacy efforts is critical!

Join us at any of the receptions listed below ...

These meet-and-greet receptions will take place from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. and are free to attend and open to all credit union employees and volunteers. We hope that you will be able to join us at the Legislative Reception in your area. While attendance is free, we do ask that your RSVP for logistical purposes. If you have any questions, please contact CeJae Vtipilson (804.731.9297 or cvtipilson@vacul.org).
