Make Time for Lawmaker Visits In-District this Summer

Summer brings fun, sun and plenty of opportunities to meet with your elected officials – both federal and state – in the district.

Central Missouri Community Credit Union President/CEO Carol White invited State Representative Denny Hoskins (R-District 54), who is also a member, to visit the credit union when his local fundraising event was cancelled due to rain on June 20.

“It was great to be able to show him our support in person and reinforce the personal connection with Denny,” says White. “As credit unions, we know how important it is to build relationships with our members. It’s also important to build relationships with elected officials and help them understand what makes credit unions a needed part of their community.”

Kansas City credit union advocates participated in U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver’s (D-District 5) annual gathering at his home on June 6, which included local barbecue and live music. Representatives from Central Missouri Community Credit Union, CommunityAmerica Credit Union and Kansas City Credit Union attended and met with Congressman Cleaver in advance of Missouri Hike the Hill.

More federal legislative events are coming up, and the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) is scheduling in-district meetings with federal lawmakers and/or staff during the August work period. There is a long list of events taking place with state lawmakers all across Missouri, from Hartsburg and Bolivar to Cape Girardeau and Camdenton. 

Please sign up as a Credit Union Advocate to receive direct emails about these events and more. You can also contact Amy McLard and David Kent for more information.
