June 2017 Chapter Report
Congressional Recess Offers Opportunity to Meet with your Representative
Because the most impactful meetings with legislators occur face to face in their home districts, the 2017 Congressional recess is an excellent time to invite your representative to speak at a chapter meeting. Recess runs from July 31–Sept. 4; we encourage all chapters to host a lawmaker whether it’s from your state legislature or Congress.
If you already have plans to host a lawmaker or if you need assistance getting a meeting scheduled with a lawmaker, please contact April Krause, political and grassroots director at akrause@cornerstoneleague.coop or 800-442-5762, Ext. 6487.

There is Still Time to Hike the Hill
Hike the Hill
Cornerstone’s annual Hike the Hill event is scheduled for June 26-28 in Washington, D.C. Hike the Hill is an opportunity to meet not only with congressional representatives but the agencies that regulate credit unions.
The agenda and other details will be available soon. However, for planning purposes the event will begin with a welcome reception at 5:30pm on Monday, June 26. Tuesday morning we will begin with a legislative and regulatory briefing, followed by Capitol Hill visits. On Wednesday we will wrap up the event with regulatory visits.
Contact Gretchen Ziegler at gziegler@cornerstoneleague.coop for questions.


Mustang Mania
Mustang Mania
Are you feeling lucky?

Chances to win are $100 each and only 1,500 tickets will be sold. The odds are absolutely in your favor. The drawing will be held 30 days after the last ticket is sold or no later than October 31, via Facebook live. The winner will be responsible for tax, title, and license fees.

Soles for Change
Soles for ChangeHow many of us have a ridiculous amount of shoes we never wear? How many of us wish we had more closet space? Luckily, we have a solution!
The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation will be collecting shoes in a combined effort with the Cornerstone Credit Union League throughout 2017. All shoes collected will go to developing nations around the world and sold by micro-entrepreneurs who seek a hand-up, not a hand-out, from poverty.
You can donate gently used or new shoes at the Principles and Philosophy Conference, the Young Professionals Conference and the Women’s Leadership Conference. This is an easy item to collect at your local Chapters as well.
