Use Cornerstone's Handy Checklist to Track Progress and Qualify for New Advocacy PAC Awards
Thursday, June 23, 2016 6:20 AM

The Capitol Award and ImPACt Award are now the highest-level advocacy awards that a credit union or an individual can receive for their participation in political action fundraising and grassroots activity. These two new awards recognize those whose efforts have gone above and beyond in their support of advocacy at the state and/or federal level. Award winners will be recognized at the Cornerstone League Annual Meeting in 2017.

This award acknowledges credit unions at two levels based on their asset size; those with $50 million or less in assets and those greater than $50 million. To receive the Capitol Award, credit unions must participate in the following essential advocacy activities:

  • Run Project Zip Code
  • Meet PAC fundraising goal
  • Respond to critical legislative and regulatory calls to action
  • Sign up for CU: R.O.A.R

To understand the new requirements and track your progress throughout the year, use the following worksheet, which doubles as a handy checklist.
