The best way to move the needle on credit union policy is to speak directly to lawmakers and to learn from experts about the most pressing credit union issues. The best place to do that is the 2020 Alabama Advocacy Conference on Tuesday, March 3, and Wednesday, March 4, at the Renaissance Hotel & Spa in Montgomery. This conference will be full of valuable advocacy and regulatory information with opportunities for the CEO, senior executives and other staff to build relationships with lawmakers.
“The State Advocacy Conference is one of the most valuable conferences we attend,” said Tyler Beck, COO, Five Star Credit Union. “It has improved our understanding of the issues at the state level and has significantly improved our relationships with our local representatives. We have relationships with our representatives that we would not have if we had not been attending the annual State Advocacy Conference.”
Conference attendees will hear from speakers such as former Lt. Governor and LSCU contract lobbyist Steve Windom, Yellowhammer Media Editor Sean Ross, CUNA’s Trey Hawkins, regulators from the NCUA and ACUA, and former Congressman and current Chief of Staff to Gov. Kay Ivey, Jo Bonner. Attendees also will meet local legislators at the lawmaker reception hosted by Alabama State Employees (ASE) Credit Union near the State House. The connections made at this conference are essential to the credit union industry.
