Program Overview

Stand up for credit unions at the Oregon state capitol this year to protect and advance the credit union charter!

We look forward to seeing you at this important advocacy event in Oregon. As a reminder, the 2020 legislative session will be a short one, with only 35 legislative days, and legislators will be focusing primarily on technical updates and fixes to the passed budget. This legislative luncheon gives us the opportunity to maintain a strong presence in the Oregon Capitol without a long day of meetings and events. Credit unions must continue to deliver our message of Structure, Value and Impact!  

The day will include a morning briefing, followed by visits with our legislators, and then remarks by legislative guests and lunch. It is always time to tell the credit union story! You are welcome to reach out to your legislators to let them know you will be in the Capitol as the Association is not scheduling any individual appointments. However, we will be delivering key background information to each legislative office. To find your legislator, click here.

Please note that we have recently updated our registration system. You will need to sign up for a new account on our website to complete your registration. If you experience any issues with registration,  for assistance.
