The Arkansas Credit Union Association saw record attendance—more than 200 people—at its annual Legislative Luncheon Wednesday.

Arkansas Credit Union Association President Vicky Salkeld, CLE, noted that with the luncheon being held on the third day of the session, no bills had gone far enough in the process to require legislators’ attendance at committee meetings, and that was helpful in freeing many to attend. Add to that a 70-degree January day that made the walk across the street to the event even more appealing.

Attendees included Arkansas senators and representatives, a chief of staff, and staff members from both houses. They also saw three constitutional officers in attendance.

Among the political figures were 20 Arkansas credit unions participants and nine Cornerstone staff members, which provided an excellent opportunity for credit unions to show their support and appreciation to lawmakers.
