State Governmental affairs Conference
April 10th and 11th
The Louisiana credit union movement is a powerful and effective advocacy force. Our advocacy starts with the close, personal relationships we’ve collectively built with lawmakers and policymakers at all levels of government.
The 2018 State Governmental Affairs Conference is your chance to build relationships and share your credit union’s story with some of the most influential figures in state government. You’ll have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with leading lawmakers who have the power to shape the future of our statewide movement. You’ll also hear important legislative updates and engage in meaningful networking with your peers from across the state!
So be an advocate for our future, your future and the future of the credit union movement at the 2018 #StateGAC!
