Cornerstone Advocacy

Upcoming Advocacy Events

Cornerstone League holds advocacy events in each state capital to advance the interests of credit unions and cultivate relationships with elected officials and their legislative staffs. These events take place only when a state legislature is in session. That means Cornerstone League and its political associations in Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma will each hold a major advocacy event annually, while Arkansas and Texas association events will take place biennially in odd-numbered years.

Why are State Advocacy Events Important?

We hear it all the time: All politics are local. Yet when most people think of advocacy, they think of lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C. To really get things done, an advocacy strategy should begin at the state level with a growing cadre of elected officials that can be cultivated over time. That’s because, by comparison, our efforts at the local and state levels will be far more fruitful.

In fact, it’s not uncommon for key credit union legislative and regulatory issues to gain momentum in the states first, not in D.C. While some states are dealing with cannabis banking, data security, PACE loans, payday lending, and field-of-membership issues, for example, those same issues could languish for years in Congress before new legislation from multiple states can garner enough imperative on Capitol Hill.
