Reception Honors Best Efforts
Every year the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues celebrate credit union leaders who go above and beyond to support the Leagues’ advocacy efforts. The Leagues are excited to announce the winners for 2014—and in addition, recognize their efforts during a special reception at REACH 2014, the Leagues’ annual convention at L.A. Live.

November 4 is election day, and one of the hottest races for credit unions in California is in Congressional District 31. Pete Aguilar, a former Arrowhead CU employee, tops the Leagues’ priority list of must-win races. The Leagues’ federal Political Action Committee (PAC) contributed to an independent expenditure in support of Aguilar, something the Leagues could never have accomplished without generous contributions to PAC by credit union professionals.
