It’s Almost Time for the Alabama Advocacy Conference

In just one week, you should be joining the LSCU Advocacy Team, lawmakers, and industry leaders during the 2021 Virtual Alabama Advocacy Conference.

“For anyone in Alabama, working for a credit union, this annual event is best described as a crucial opportunity for credit union professionals who are active in advocacy or want to learn more,” explains Blake Westbrook, LSCU Director of Political Action and Grassroots. “The LSCU Advocacy Team spends hundreds of hours every year communicating with lawmakers – so this isn’t for us. This is for the credit unions. It’s a chance for credit union staff to learn more and speak with lawmakers. The better our credit unions understand the process, the more successful we’ll all be and this success benefits credit union members.”

The Virtual Conference is from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on April 26 and includes:

  • Update from LSCU President, Jared Ross
  • Discussion of Legislative Priorities with Sr. Director of Governmental Affairs Allison Allen
  • Update from the President Pro Tempore, Greg Reed (R-Jasper)
  • Update from the Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon (R-Monrovia)
  • Update from the Chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services, Chris Blackshear (R-Phenix City)
  • Featured Speaker, NCUA Board Member Rodney Hood
  • FIET update from the Office of the Department of Revenue
  • Alabama Political Outlook from Todd Stacy, Alabama Daily News
  • Regulator Roundtable featuring Tim Quinn, Supervisory Examiner, Southern Region, NCUA and Greg McClellan, Administrator, ACUA.

Also, there will be an in-person Legislative Reception on Tuesday, April 27 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at:
