Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and KCUA President/CEO Marla Marsh welcomed more than 130 credit union staff and volunteers ( Vision Feb. 14).
 
State Sen. Rob Olsen (R-23), chairman of the Senate Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee, and State Rep. Pete DeGraaf (R-81), chairman of the House Financial Institutions Committee, also greeted the group before meetings began with legislators.
 
Throughout the day, attendees carried the message about the credit union difference and credit unions' role in the state's economy.
 
Credit unions discussed efforts to protect businesses from bad faith assertions of patent infringement, to help their communities with financial literacy and about mortgage registration fees. Having a strong state charter option also was a topic of discussion.
 
The legislative leadership panel wrapped up the afternoon, with appearances by House Speaker Ray Merrick (R-27), Assistant Minority Leader Tom Burroughs (D-33) and Jeff Russell, director of Kansas Legislative Administrative Services.
 
Credit unions were only some of the visitors to the newly renovated Capitol last week. The Mid-America Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Kansas Dental Hygienist Association, Washburn Institute of Technology, Kansas for Change and the Kansas Parent Teacher Association also took their voices to the legislature ( The Topeka Capital-Journal Feb. 15).
