Connecting with credit union champions is a hole-in-one

With summer recess fully underway for the Ohio General Assembly, election season has kicked off, which means golf outings, barbecues, ice cream socials, and other in-district events. These events provide a great opportunity for credit unions to connect with their state legislators in a less-formal environment, further building upon relationships and strengthening credit union advocacy efforts. Below is a snapshot of the League and credit unions connecting with legislators:

  • Joined alongside Community Star Credit Union, the League supported State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) at his first-ever golf outing. It was the credit union relationship that drove the support of Rep. Miller during his initial run in the primary, and he has been championing our issues ever since.
  • The League was able to connect recently with State Rep. Jon Cross (R-Kenton) at his annual event at Indian Lake. Rep. Cross was one of the sponsors of the Family Forward program, which the League partnered with Treasurer of State Robert Sprague to support.
  • Pillar Credit Union was happy to join their State Senator, Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin), for his recent golf outing. Senator Reineke was a champion during his time in the Ohio House and has continued that support in the Ohio Senate.

If you have any questions or are interested in joining your legislator at an upcoming event, please contact Sr. Manager of Political and Grassroots Affairs, Andrew Canan.
