Program Overview

Stand up for credit unions at the capitol this year to protect and advance the credit union charter. Our goal is to get 200 credit union professionals—including one from every district—to join us at the Washington advocacy event of the year. You can bring a friend too! We will explain the latest political issues affecting credit unions, and share our newest economic impact report data, then you will have a chance to share those issues with legislators. Lunch and training are on us. Now is the time to tell the credit union story.

Please visit the Washington State Legislature website to find your home’s district prior to registering for the event.
