Cornerstone VP Political Affairs Gretchen Ziegler said, "I want to thank all the chapters that submitted their nominations for Chapter of the Year and to especially congratulate those who were recognized at the Annual Meeting. The tremendous political activity we saw in 2015 shows how much people are engaged and enthusiastic about being a part of advocacy at the chapter level. This can only benefit credit unions now and far into the future as we continue to strengthen relationships with our lawmakers."

Cornerstone Credit Union League is grateful to all of the chapters for their efforts to be politically engaged and standout supporters of the credit union movement.
