Texas league develops advocate training series
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (11/15/10)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) has developed a “Navigator Series” of training sessions to help credit union legislative coordinators become stronger advocates in preparation for the 2011 legislative session. A TCUL release said the Navigator Series prepares legislative coordinators for a higher level of political involvement by combining information about the “nuts and bolts” of the political process with best practices for engaging members and employees in grassroots advocacy. Topics covered by the three-part series include:
* Navigating the Capitol by finding a route to important sites and understanding how bills are passed; * Navigating the relationship to effectively communicate the credit union’s role and concerns, handle meetings and learn best practices for employee and member involvement; and * Navigating the issues by reviewing key issues and players in the 2011 legislative session.
The first session was held early this month, while the second session will occur in December and the third will be in January. In the future, the first two portions of the Navigator Series will be aimed at new legislative coordinators, while the “navigating the issues” segment will be offered to all coordinators to prepare them for upcoming legislative sessions, the league said.
