  • An update on the League's state legislative and regulatory agenda
  • A reception with state legislators in a relaxed environment
  • HIKE THE HILL – taking the credit union message to our lawmakers at the state Capitol

The League is in the middle of a legislative fight to change the law and give credit unions the right to accept public deposits, breaking the banks virtual monopoly over these deposits and providing fairness for credit unions and greater choices for our state, counties, and municipalities and their agencies. Now is the time to come together to cooperatively attack credit union issues. The LSCU State GAC in Florida is the perfect place to get immersed in the legislative and regulatory issues.
