2020 California Government Relations Rally (GRR)

April 13-14 | Sacramento, CA




Make a positive impact on your state legislators during the 2020 California Government Relations Rally!

Please join us for the 2020 California Government Relations Rally on April 13-14. When you lobby your elected officials, California credit unions win! In 2019 you advocated in support of GLB exemption to the California Consumer Privacy Act; In behalf of allowing Prize Linked Savings Accounts; and for our state charter modernization legislation. Because of your hard work, all of these bills passed the Legislature and were signed by Governor Brown.

We need your help for similar success in 2020! This year’s session has just kicked off and we will be announcing specific lobby day topics shortly. As is always the case in the State Capitol, things change at a moment’s notice and bills move fast! Keep an eye out for up to the minute briefing documents ahead of GRR. Also, please be aware that due to the legislative calendar, GRR does NOT coincide with the CU SacTown Run this year.
