Passionate Advocates — Gear Up for Oregon CU Day at the Capitol

In two weeks, Oregon credit union advocates will convene virtually for the 2021 Oregon Credit Union Day at the Capitol, where they’ll share the Credit Union Difference with local lawmakers.

This annual event brings together passionate advocates for discussion around legislative issues and updates, insights from legislative leaders, advocacy training, and more. This year’s virtual setting means it’s easier than ever to make your voice heard and advance the Credit Union Movement! Credit union professionals of every level are invited to stand up to protect the credit union structure and expand powers in the state charter on April 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. PDT.

Attendees will hear from special regulatory and legislative guests, including State Treasurer, Tobias Read; Oregon House Republican Leader, Christine Drazen; Secretary of State, Shemia Fagan, and several others.

“Deepening relationships with our state lawmakers and representatives is vital to the success of the Credit Union Movement,” said Pamela Leavitt, NWCUA Policy Advisor, Oregon State Advocacy and Grassroots.“They want to hear about the incredible work credit unions are doing in their communities and the unique ways they’re meeting members’ needs — this is the perfect opportunity to tell those stories.”

The event’s robust agenda also includes updates from your NWCUA Advocacy Team, as well as a compelling presentation from the PR experts at Gallatin Affairs on the power of virtual advocacy. Visit the event page for the full schedule.

To make this year’s advocacy efforts as impactful as possible, it’s essential a credit union professional from every district join this must-attend event.

Oregon Credit Union Day at the Capitol will provide attendees with everything they need to prepare for upcoming virtual meetings with state representatives, which will be coordinated and scheduled that day, or in the days and weeks following the event.
