Security First Credit Union recently hosted a meet-and-greet with U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX, 34th District) and credit unions from across the Magic Valley Chapter.

The meeting served two purposes:  to present Rep. Vela with a contribution from the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) and to recognize credit unions for their outstanding support of Cornerstone's advocacy efforts. Several credit unions received top honors, including Security First CU, RGV CU, and South Texas FCU. 

Rep. Vela thanked the credit unions for their support, and reiterated the importance of being politically engaged at both the federal and local level.

The CAT PAC (Creating Awareness Together Political Action Committee), Security First's internal advocacy team, served as official hosts of the event. 

"The CAT PAC was created to educate employees and members about the importance of advocacy, while at the same time raising the profile of credit unions in the community," said Grace Mann, chief operating officer. "We wanted to remove the intimidation factor from advocacy and make it fun." 

"The CAT PAC is a good example of how the CU: ROAR concept can be customized to fit a credit union, regardless of size," said Jim Phelps, Cornerstone SVP of Advocacy.
