Strong turnout at Maine CUs day at state house
AUGUSTA, Maine (3/29/10)--With one of the highest turnouts of credit union representatives in years, the 14th Maine Credit Union Day at the State House accomplished its primary objective: connecting credit unions with legislators, said the Maine Credit Union League.

Nearly 80 representatives from 35 credit unions joined the league in Augusta Thursday for the event. "It was great to see attendees representing credit unions from every region of the state at this year's event," said league President John Murphy. "Legislators want to meet with credit unions in their district and we were able to make those connections this year. A number of legislators mentioned how impressed they were at the strong participation from credit unions, and that was nice to hear," he added. About two-thirds of the legislature took the time to visit the Maine Credit Union display and speak with attendees. The House and Senate also passed a joint resolution recognizing the league and Maine's credit unions "for the positive contributions and significant role they have made with Maine people and their communities."
