April 6-8 in Sacramento
Three events crucial to supporting the credit union cause are coming to Sacramento, and you won’t want to miss out!

2014 California Government Relations Rally (GRR)
(April 7-8, The Citizen Hotel)
Join other credit union leaders and advocates for an opportunity to discuss face-to-face with legislators about current and pending legislation affecting credit unions and the movement. Plus, additional educational programming featuring agency speakers and hot topics, and valuable networking will keep your credit union relevant.

The success of past lobby days in Sacramento have had significant impact on credit unions, including passing legislation related to financial literacy, lifeline services, credit union exemption from onerous foreclosure, and much more. Your attendance can defeat other harmful bills pending before lawmakers today. Make it count.
