St. Louis Chapter's Reception Welcomes 38 Lawmakers

St. Louis area credit unions welcomed more than 38 lawmakers and guests – including chairs of both House & Senate financial services committees – during the St. Louis Chapter of Credit Union's annual legislative reception. The September 6 event was an opportunity for credit union leaders, staff and volunteers to meet with state lawmakers and discuss legislative priorities.

Both our president, Brad Douglas, and the St. Louis Chapter's vice chairperson, Laura Alfeldt, stressed the importance of credit unions in their communities.

Attendees took this opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with lawmakers and candidates.  

In addition to one-on-one conversations, lawmakers also learned more about credit unions with a slide show highlighting credit union facts and achievements in the region.

Nearly 50 participants from the following 10 organizations attended the event, held at Ameristar Casino:

  • 1st Financial Federal Credit Union
