Credit unions connect in-district with champions

Building and maintaining relationships is key to sustained advocacy success. Meeting locally with officials in their district goes even further in building those relationships, as it provides the opportunity to connect with a member right there at home. Recently, the League and credit unions across the state were able to connect with members in their districts:

  • Southwest Ohio credit unions connected with Congressman Greg Landsman (D-Cincinnati) over coffee. After hearing about critical legislative issues, Rep. Landsman reached out to his office to make them aware of credit union priorities, including inquiring about signing on as co-sponsor for the SAFE Banking Act.
  • State Rep. Nick Santucci (R-Howland Twp.) visited his district credit union, 717 Credit Union, to learn more about credit unions and how his office can be of better assistance. Rep. Santucci learned about the incredible lending programs offered to give members a break in times of need and received a branch tour so he could get a complete understanding of credit union operations.

If you are interested in connecting with your local elected officials, the League advocacy team is always ready to assist in setting up a visit.
