To ensure that credit union advocates can meet with as many legislators as possible, the New York Credit Union Association’s Hike the Hill event will now be held Sept. 28–29 in Washington, D.C.
New York Credit Union Association leadership and credit union advocates will meet with legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss initiatives that directly impact New York state credit unions — including solutions to provide legal cannabis banking services, expanding financial access to underserved communities and more.
These timely meetings, which will be held all day Wednesday, Sept. 28 and approximately 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Sept. 29, will give credit union advocates the opportunity to discuss legislative matters that influence everyday operations and procedures in New York state with our members of Congress.
The event will also include a Credit Union Night, a reception with legislators, on Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Credit Union House. The event will be a great opportunity for policymakers to meet credit union executives from across the state and learn about the important work that they do for New York families. Light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served.
Advocacy is the cornerstone of the Association and its statewide credit union movement. Through our collective and collaborative efforts — and your participation — we’re able to influence public policy and help shape national and state laws and regulations that have a direct impact on New York’s credit unions.
Interested participants can register for the event and secure their lodging on the Association’s website. Registration deadline is Sept. 16. The Association has reserved a room block for Tuesday, Sept 27 and Wednesday, Sept. 29 at the Courtyard Washington Downtown/Convention Center, located at 901 L St. N.W., which is now available to attendees, who should identify themselves as with the Association to ensure that they receive the group rate. The hotel reservation deadline is Sept. 9.
