Credit Union Leaders’ Roles in Advocacy

Wednesday | 3pm - 4pm
Jared Ross, VP, Governmental Affairs, LSCU
Jason Cochran, Director, Governmental Affairs, LSCU

Each year, our credit unions are asked what the most important aspects of affiliation to the League are, and, each year, advocacy continues to rank among the highest reasons. The LSCU Governmental Affairs team works hard every day in Montgomery, Tallahassee, and Washington, but cannot do it alone. We need the help of our credit union leaders to be successful at the state and federal levels. Join us for a panel discussion about the role of directors in the credit union industry’s advocacy efforts.
