With the uncertain regulatory climate impacting financial institutions, it's never been more important to be involved in advocating for credit unions. Join your peers in Jefferson City for the 2012 Missouri Credit Union Association Annual Advocacy and Business Meeting. You'll have the opportunity to hear first-hand issues affecting credit unions and how your involvement can help shape policy in the legislature.

Advocacy is defined as the strategic use of information and action to shape opinions, policies and practices that affect people's lives. This one statement sums up the goal of the Missouri Credit Union Association Annual Advocacy & Business Meeting. During the meeting, you and your peers come together to gather detailed information about issues affecting the credit union movement and have the opportunity to take that message forward to policy makers in Jefferson City. Your involvement can directly affect how legislators understand issues of concern for our industry and the consumers we serve. Join us. It's our time.
