2015 Hike the Hill – Registration Now Open
Wednesday, May 6, 2015 6:25 AM

Hike the HillMark your calendar and make plans to attend Cornerstone's 2015 Hike the Hill in Washington, DC, on June 22–24. This year's event takes a bit of a twist as we spend one day focused solely on regulatory-related issues and one day on Capitol Hill for legislative meetings. 

As credit unions continue to struggle with increasing regulatory burdens, this event provides the perfect opportunity to speak up and let your collective voices be heard with the agencies that regulate us. We intend to meet with NCUA, CFPB, and other agencies. In fact, the Cornerstone advocacy team has confirmed that Gary Stein, from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will speak to visiting credit unions on June 23 regarding the overdraft project.

"Courtesy pay is a service valued by many credit union members, as well as a source of income to credit unions," said Cornerstone Credit Union League SVP Regulatory Compliance Suzanne Yashewski. "As CFPB considers placing restrictions on such programs, credit unions need to share their concerns. Meeting with Mr. Stein will be a great opportunity for credit unions to ensure our concerns are recognized."

While there is no fee to attend Hike the Hill, we ask that you please visit the Cornerstone League website to register for the event. You’ll note there is a place to indicate who your member of Congress is as well as which lawmakers you’d like to visit. This information is critical to us as we schedule Capitol Hill visits.

Additionally, hotel reservations may be made at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel at the group rate of $239/night plus tax. Our group rate expires on May 29, so don’t wait to book your room.

As you make your travel plans keep in mind that our first event is a welcome reception on Monday evening, June 22 beginning at 5:30 PM. Hike the Hill will wrap up on Wednesday afternoon, June 24 at the conclusion of Hill visits. 

Keep your eye on the Leaguer for more details or check the League's website for updates on scheduled meetings. In the meantime, gather your essential advocacy staff and begin planning your trip now.

If you have questions about this event, contact Gretchen Ziegler at (469) 385-6484 or gziegler@cornerstoneleague.coop.
