Electric Cooperatives FCU Annual Meeting

Electric Cooperatives FCU, located in Little Rock, Ark., held its annual meeting on March 16. Arkansas Rep. Dan Douglas was invited to speak about the importance of contacting elected officials.

Douglas shared insights into the reasoning behind recent legislation and explanations for taxation legislation, including how lawmakers look at not only what's fair but also what's needed. He also advised the credit union's members to get involved in the legislative process by contacting their senators and representatives to give opinions on upcoming legislation.

“Know who you representatives are and contact them,” Douglas said. 

Electric Cooperatives President/CEO Betty Chandler said, "This is a message we have tried to get across to members throughout the Cornerstone Credit Union League—advocacy through member engagement."

Also attending was Ron Harrod, lobbyist for the Arkansas Credit Union Association.
