2024 Credit Union Statehouse Day advances Movement

Published by: Andrew Canan

May 29, 2024 | Political Action

Though advocacy can be difficult during an election year, 2024 Credit Union Statehouse Day moved the needle thanks to this year’s attendees – made up of Hike the Hill veterans, young professionals, and volunteers alike – telling the credit union story in front of decision-makers in Columbus. This face-to-face advocacy is crucial to ensure Movement progress is gained, and misguided policy is avoided. By sharing with legislators the great work Ohio’s credit unions are doing to make home-buying more affordable and accessible; how they can empower credit unions to best serve their members; and why they should allow small businesses to make their own strategic choices, credit unions will remain top of mind during the remainder of this General Assembly.

This impactful day further fueled our members’ passion for Movement advocacy, with credit union attendees having an opportunity to hear from Speaker of the Ohio House Jason Stephens (R-Kitts Hill) and President of the Ohio Senate Matt Huffman (R-Lima) during the morning session. Over lunch, attendees heard from top officials from the Ohio Division of Financial Institutions and had a chance to ask the state’s top regulator pressing questions on their minds. If you were unable to join us for Credit Union Statehouse Day, don’t miss this fall’s top advocacy event, Hike the Hill, on Sept 10-12. Mark your calendars now and look for more registration information to come.
