200+ Advocates Take Credit Union Message to Kansas Capitol

Gov. Laura Kelly speaks to a packed Rotunda of credit union advocates.

A record 224 credit union advocates stormed the Statehouse for Kansas Credit Union Day at the Capitol.

Between legislative appointments, Capitol tours and networking time, the group heard from several of the state’s top leaders, including Governor Laura Kelly, Senate President Susan Wagle, Speaker of the House Ron Ryckman, House Minority Leader Tom Sawyer and Speaker Pro Tem Blaine Finch. Kansas credit unions were also granted special privileges to sit on the House floor. See the photos.

“The energy that’s generated by more than 200 credit union advocates in one place, with one united message, is incredibly powerful,” said Brad Douglas, president/CEO of HCUA. “This was a tremendous show of strength by credit unions from across the state – one that made a lasting impression on our legislators.”
