Relationship building is critical to advocacy success, which is why the League partnered with 7 17 Credit Union to host the annual Northeast Ohio Legislative Forum and Golf Outing. With a new location, this year’s event connected legislators and credit unions from across Northeast Ohio. Joining the event were State Reps. Joe Miller (D-Amherst), Bill Roemer (R-Richfield), Mike Skindell (D-Lakewood), Kent Smith (D-Euclid), and Dan Troy (D-Willowick). After waiting out a torrential downpour for a morning of golf, the event wrapped up with a robust lunch conversation over how credit unions drive community impact by lifting all people, families, businesses, and communities. With an upcoming November election and a constricted legislative schedule, the League and participating credit unions also highlighted the need to pass House Bill 116, the Ohio Computer Crimes Act, by year-end to better protect credit unions and their members from bad actors.

If you have any questions or are interested in hosting a legislator or candidate, please feel free to reach out to Sr. Manager of Political and Grassroots Affairs, Andrew Canan.

Members connect with U.S. Senator J.D. Vance

Credit union advocacy strength is built by the willingness of Ohio credit unions to go above and beyond to advocate for 3.2 million members. Last week, dozens of credit union leaders joined the League for a meeting with U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) to discuss the successes and challenges facing credit unions and their members in his home state.

Are you keeping up with recent changes to regulatory laws and regulations?

As we start a new year, it is essential that credit unions have a review process for policies and procedures. As the financial industry evolves, so should the resources and guidelines that the credit union follows. As part of your annual League membership, making these updates is more accessible than ever.
