The Arkansas Credit Union Association held its annual legislative luncheon Thursday, April 14, at the State Capitol in Little Rock. It was the second day of the 2016 session, which is focused on the budgeting process for state government. 

About 25 credit union CEOs and volunteers from across the state attended the event to meet and visit with approximately 200 state legislators in a friendly, comfortable environment.

“This luncheon is always one of the Legislature’s premier events, and they look forward to it every year,” said Cornerstone Credit Union Association President Reta Kahley. “We try to use this opportunity to enhance our relationships with our senators and representatives, as well as staffers and constitutional officers. It is not often that we get the chance to make an impact without asking for anything in return from our legislative delegation.”

Ron Harrod, governmental affairs consultant and lobbyist for the Association, said, “Our Legislative Luncheon is the standard by which all other luncheons and receptions are measured. I hear from our legislators that this is the event that sets the tone for the rest of legislative session.”
