CU System
First event at Wisconsin CU house to be after elections
MADISON, Wis. (9/30/08)--The newly established Wisconsin Credit Union House in Madison, Wis., directly across from the State Capitol, will hold its first event in early November immediately following the elections. The Wisconsin Credit Union House will function similarly to the National Credit Union House located in Washington, D.C., serving as a lobbying hub for credit unions networking with their elected representatives, said the Wisconsin Credit Union League. The facility will be open for use by credit unions to host meetings with lawmakers, and to conduct advocacy efforts and other events (The League newsletter Sept. 22). “This space belongs to Wisconsin credit unions,” said Brett Thompson, league president/CEO. “It’s their house. They’ll be able to reserve space for advocacy-related meetings, planning sessions or other meetings, beginning early next year. We encourage them to visit when they’re in Madison as well.” Credit unions attending the State Government Affairs Conference in Madison in January may have the first opportunity to see the Wisconsin Credit Union House, although ideas for an “open house” are being explored, the league said. Several leagues have followed the lead of the Credit Union House in Washington and have established facilities near state capitols.
