In-District Meetings in August Lead Up to Hike the Hill in October

Credit union leaders in Missouri met with multiple members of Congress during the August work period. In-district meetings brought credit union constituents together with U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-District 4) in Harrisonville, U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-District 5) in Kansas City, and U.S. Rep. Billy Long (R-District 7) in Springfield, and a staff member for Senator Roy Blunt (R) attended the St. Louis Chapter of Credit Unions Legislative Reception. In addition, meetings took place during fundraising events for Long in Springfield and U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-District 3) in Jefferson City.

Federal lawmakers are back in Washington, D.C. and they have a packed agenda through the end of the year. Advocates from Missouri now have the opportunity to meet on Capitol Hill to discuss credit union concerns and issues during the Missouri-Kansas Hike the Hill, October 20-22.

The Missouri Credit Union Association is working together with the Kansas Credit Union Association to hold the joint Hike the Hill. MCUA is arranging the legislative briefing, regulatory and Hill visits, and Tuesday night dinner for credit union staff and volunteers attending Hike the Hill.  A room block with a limited number of rooms is reserved until September 25.
