OCUL PACs busy through quarter 3; Remit your PAC dollars by year-end

Published by: Andrew Canan

Ensuring credit unions have a seat at the decision-making table is a key pillar of the League’s advocacy efforts. Thanks to your continued support, the League’s Political Action Committees (PACs) have remained strong and ensured that voice was heard in a big way. Through quarter 3, the League’s PACs have raised approximately $217,000 and disbursed $227,000. These funds go toward aggressively supporting those who champion the credit union Movement. Thanks to your relentless advocacy efforts, we have seen priority legislation like Senate Bill 1, which requires financial literacy to be taught for high school graduation, passed out of the Ohio General Assembly and signed by the Governor. Credit unions across the state have also connected at golf outings, barbecues, and other events with state legislators. Additionally, southwest Ohio credit unions were able to connect in-district with longtime credit union champion Steve Chabot (R-Cincinnati), while northeast Ohio credit union leaders heard from multiple State Representatives at the Northeast Ohio Legislative Forum & Golf Outing. However, our job is not done, and we can use your help to finish the year out and position ourselves well for the midterm elections.

For credit unions with payroll deduction programs, please remit year-end contributions by Dec. 23, 2021, through ACH or by check made out to “OCULAC” or “OCULPAC” (depending on applicable PAC). You can mail them directly to the League at 10 W. Broad St., Suite 1100, Columbus, OH 43215. Finally, if you wish to make a one-time contribution, you can do so here. Connect with Sr. Manager, Political and Grassroot Affairs, Andrew Canan, for additional information and questions.
