Attend the 2019 Alabama Advocacy Conference to make a difference!
“The State Advocacy Conference is an essential conference to attend for myself and credit union leadership throughout the state. The conference provides attendees with up-to-date legislative issues facing our industry and how collectively, with our legislators, we can move forward our industry agenda to benefit our members legislatively. The State Advocacy Conference allows us to further engage our legislators in an environment that is conducive for positive, enlightening conversation, yielding a positive understanding of how ideas or changes legislatively impact our credit union industry, and especially our members, their constituents, locally.”
Ola Anise, President/CEO, Azalea City Credit Union
“The State Advocacy Conference is one of the most valuable conferences we attend. 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. “
Tyler Beck, COO, Five Star Credit Union
“I attended the Alabama Advocacy Conference last year because it was a great opportunity to gain insight into the credit union industry. It is important for Young Professionals to support credit union advocacy because our efforts contribute to the future of our industry.”
Tanesha Timmons, YP, Family Savings FCU
Join the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates at the Alabama Advocacy Conference March 19-20, 2019 in Montgomery, AL.
The Alabama Advocacy Conference is full of valuable advocacy and regulatory information with opportunities for anyone at your credit union—not just the CEO—interested in learning more about advocacy and building relationships with lawmakers. These connections are essential to the future of the credit union movement. The planned reception with state lawmakers and numerous speakers discussing the current Alabama political landscape will allow credit unions to network with Alabama’s key policy makers.
Gov. Kay Ivey will be the keynote speaker for the event.
