Webinar: An Army of Volunteer Advocates

Update: This webinar has been cancelled.

Hosted by: Volunteers Council

Date: Wednesday, February 7, 2018
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CST

Starting in 2018, the Cornerstone League will be collaborating with member credit unions to develop an Army of Volunteer Advocates.
Volunteers have a very important story to tell, and serve because they care about the credit union movement and about People Helping People. That is a powerful message for elected officials to hear. Volunteers are not paid lobbyists and are often the very constituents their representatives care about most. It can be powerful to have them deliver a message or request.  
Many volunteers want to help in the political arena, but do not know how to get started. The Army of Volunteer Advocates is designed to identify, educate, and engage volunteers in the political process to help ensure that credit unions thrive well into the future.
