ADVOCACY 201

Advocacy 201 is an enhanced training program designed to help seasoned advocates take their previous advocacy training experience and turn it into practical legislative outreach. This exciting workshop will take an intensive look at the role advocates play as key contacts, and will focus on building relationships with your assigned elected officials and policymakers.

This event has occurred in the past and will be back in Summer 2023. 

Fall Hike the Hill

Join us at the Fall Hike the Hill as we continue to connect with the policymakers in our nation’s capital. In addition to CUNA GAC and in-district meetings during Congressional recesses, the smaller Hike the Hill meetings held twice a year, complement the strategy of keeping credit union priorities in front of key leaders, and provide the opportunity for in-depth discussions.

This event has occurred in the past and will be back in Summer 2023. 

LEGAL SYMPOSIUM

The Legal Symposium will include both familiar sessions and new. Returning favorites will be the regulatory roundtable and a presentation from NCUA. New sessions will address litigation risks, privacy, crypto currencies, and other emerging issues. 

These events have occurred in the past and will be back in Winter 2022.
