You can make a personal impact on a lawmaker by attending the LSCU’s 2019 Florida Advocacy Conference and Alabama Advocacy Conference. The State Advocacy Conferences feature time to interact with state lawmakers, updates on legislative and regulatory issues, and speakers. The Alabama conference is March 19-20 in Montgomery, AL, and the Florida conference is March 26-27 in Tallahassee, FL.
Credit union professionals in Alabama and Florida are speaking up about why these conferences are important to attend annually. They present an opportunity for credit union leaders to gather and learn about the most pressing issues facing credit unions in their states, as well as time to interact with state lawmakers.
“The state advocacy conference is one of the most important events of the year for Florida credit unions, and one I’m not willing to miss,” said Brent Lister, CEO of First Florida Credit Union. “As leaders in our industry, it is incumbent upon us to show up in Tallahassee and share our story on behalf of the members we serve. Grassroots efforts are the key to our legislative success, and the advocacy conference is a great way spread our message on a larger scale while building lasting relationships with policymakers.”
