League busy connecting with candidates ahead of 2024 primary

A key to longstanding advocacy success is the relationships you build with decision-makers who impact your business. The League recognizes the need to connect with candidates as early as possible in the election process to begin building strong relationships. That is why the League has been connecting with Ohio candidates for federal and state office ahead of this year’s primary. Recent examples include connecting with State Senator Michael Rulli (R-Salem), who is running for the 6th Congressional District following now-former Congressman Bill Johnson’s resignation, and former State Representative Kyle Koehler (R-Springfield), who is running for the 10th State Senate District. Both have supported credit unions during their time in the state legislature and have good relationships with local credit unions.

If you have a personal relationship with a candidate running for state or federal office, we would love to connect with them as soon as possible.

The League’s Political Action Committees (PACs) make this political advocacy possible. Participating in the League’s annual bracket challenge – Movement Madness- is a fun way to join us in these efforts. Mark your calendars for Selection Sunday on March 12 and compete against your credit union peers for the best bracket. A $50 suggested contribution for your first bracket (or $25 if you are a member of GRID Emerging Leaders) will get you into the pool. If you feel extra competitive, you may get a second bracket for a suggested contribution of just $25. Watch your email for this year’s pool registration to go live and prepare for Movement Madness!
