Use Social Media to Contact Lawmakers During Hike the Hill June 17 - 19
Credit union leaders from around the state of Missouri will Hike the Hill in Washington D.C. next week, June 17-19. Hike the Hill is an opportunity to share credit union concerns and issues with federal lawmakers and their staff.
If you aren’t headed to Washington, D.C. for this year’s Hike the Hill, you can make your voice heard from home. For example, you can post “Unite for Good” stories and member testimonials from your credit union’s Facebook and Twitter. Please tag your members’ lawmakers in these social media updates, as this ensures that the posts show up on their Facebook timelines and/or Twitter feeds.
