2022 Spring Hike the Hill
Join us at the Spring Hike the Hill as we connect with both Congressional and Regulatory decision-makers in our nation’s capital. This grassroots advocacy event offers an invaluable opportunity to educate and inform our nation’s leaders, spread the credit union message to elected officials, and engage with regulatory partners.
When you register for this event, you directly represent the collective credit union community. Now being six states strong, we have a more influential voice than ever before. You also will have the opportunity to glean important insight regarding the changing environments of payment systems and the quickly evolving world of digital assets.
Meetings will begin on the morning of Wednesday, June 8, and will conclude by mid-afternoon on Thursday, June 9.
