Record attendance at Louisiana GAC
HARAHAN, La. (6/19/09)--Nearly 100 Louisiana credit union professionals and volunteers representing 30 credit unions statewide attended the 2009 Louisiana Credit Union League Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) June 9-10 in Baton Rouge. The event had record attendance. The Louisiana GAC is an annual opportunity for Louisiana credit unions to be heard by their elected officials in Baton Rouge. Anne Cochran, league president/CEO, thanked credit unions for their support and political efforts on behalf of the movement. Featured guest speakers included, John Flagg, National Credit Union Administration; Kirk Cuevos, Dollar & Associates; Loren Scott, Loren C. Scott & Associates; Sid Seyour, Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions; and Michael Xenos, Ph.D., Louisiana State University. El “Bubba” Henry and Jeff Brooks, both with the league’s retained lobbyist/legal counsel, Adams & Reese, briefed attendees on state and national political activities. Attendees shared their position on credit union issues with a number of senators and representatives. Also present and representing the attorney general’s office was Malcolm Myer, director of capitol operations and legislative affairs. “Opportunities to interact one-on-one with our state legislatures provide 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,” said Connie Major, league executive vice president. “By attending the 2009 Louisiana GAC, attendees were informed and are now prepared to make decisions on upcoming legislation and regulations,” Cochran said. “They are able to play a more proactive role in the legislative future of the Louisiana credit union movement. Individually we are but one voice that could easily get lost in the crowd. But together, credit unions are a force to be reckoned with.”
