29 freshman legislators attend Missouri CU breakfast
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (12/12/08)--Missouri credit union representatives statewide traveled to Jefferson City to meet with newly elected legislators on Dec. 9. Nearly 30 state representatives attended the credit union breakfast as part of a freshman orientation bus tour, according to the Missouri Credit Union Association (The Missouri difference Dec. 10). “Some of the new lawmakers aren’t familiar with credit unions,” said Rolla (Mo.) FCU President/CEO Janet Honse. “It was great to have one-on-one time with the lawmakers before they are confronted with all the new responsibilities in January.”

“It was great meeting the legislators in an informal setting,” said Serri Helm, Kansas City-based CommunityAmerica vice president of corporate affairs and general counsel. “Visiting with them over breakfast provided a wonderful opportunity to learn more about their personal interests, careers, and passions--allowing us to build a relationship and hopefully a foundation of trust for future conversations,” Helm added. Roughly 29 Missouri state representatives attended, and 16 credit unions participated.
