Coinciding with the conference, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal declared May 18 as Louisiana Credit Union Day. The conference focused on the current climate of the state and federal legislature, upcoming legislation and the impact on credit unions, presented by Rob Rieger and Jeff Brooks of Adams and Reese LLP. Charles “Chuck” Johnson, a board member of the Louisiana Credit Union League and Barksdale CU, Bossier City, La., who died this year, also was honored by his friend, State Rep. Henry L. Burns (R-9), at the event. Five senators and 27 state representatives joined the credit union representatives at the conference. “The participation by our state legislators and our credit union volunteers and professionals was incredible,” said Connie Major, league executive vice president. “Opportunities to interact one-on-one with our state legislatures provides great inspiration to our credit union officials, showing them that their long-term commitment to political action and fundraising efforts truly do make a difference.”
