Tomorrow’s leaders get front row seats to advocacy in action

Published by: Andrew Canan

October 6, 2021 | Political Action

Developing the next generation of credit union leaders is critical to securing the continued success of the Credit Union Movement for generations to come. Part of that development includes growing as an Ohio credit union advocate. To bring advocacy directly to emerging leaders, the League’s young professionals group, GRID (Grow, Retain, Inspire, Development) Network, hosted two state legislators; State Representative Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Cleveland) and State Senator Niraj Antani (R-Miamisburg), both of which are young professionals, to share their background, anecdotes connected to serving as young state legislators, and how young professional credit union leaders are ready-made industry advocates. If you would like to know more about the GRID network or how you can start advocating today, reach out to Sr. Manager of Political Grassroots Affairs, Andrew Canan, or Member Outreach Manager, Christy Clark.
