MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT THE CALIFORNIA GRR
updated 03/19/13 07:46 PM
One-a-Year Opportunity This April
Credit unions in California have stood at the front lines of helping borrowers through this difficult economy. The 2013 Government Relations Rally (GRR) is your opportunity to visit your state legislators and tell your story.
This year's GRR will take place on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel.
There are a number of reasons why attending GRR is especially important this year. The 2013 freshman class of state legislators is the largest in almost 50 years, and GRR provides a great opportunity to build relationships with these 39 newly elected officials.
Relationship-building is also important now that term limits have been extended to 12 years, rather than the six-year Assembly terms and eight-year Senate terms that had been in place since 1990.
Also, it is essential to show new Banking Committee members how active your credit union is in government affairs, and in your community. Participating in GRR and subsequent activities with your legislators in their districts is the best way to show our strength in the legislative and political arenas. At our GRR fundraiser, you'll have the chance to support a great credit union friend: Assemblyman Mike Gatto, Chairman of the powerful Assembly Appropriations Committee, and Banking Committee member.
Please come to Sacramento and help make an impact. For more information about this important event, contact Patti Neumaier at 800.439.2285 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
