Congressional Recess Offers Opportunity to Meet with your Representative
Because the most impactful meetings with legislators occur face to face in their home districts, the 2018 Congressional recess is an excellent time to invite your representative to speak at a chapter meeting. Recess runs from July 30–Sept. 3; we encourage all chapters to host a lawmaker whether it's from your state legislature or Congress.
If you already have plans to host a lawmaker or if you need assistance getting a meeting scheduled with a lawmaker, please contact April Krause, political and grassroots director at akrause@cornerstoneleague.coop or 800-442-5762, Ext. 6487.

Cornerstone Activates Long-Term Digital Campaign to Engage Technology Savvy Consumers in the Credit Union Movement
Feel the Difference campaignBacked by the great success of a digital campaign launched last year, Cornerstone Credit Union League is expanding its effort to include more digital channels as part of a long-term initiative to affect consumer awareness. Cornerstone's second-year digital campaign will aim to engage consumers whose media consumption habits are increasingly leaning toward digital media channels for news, content, entertainment and online help. The goal is to reach these consumers with messaging that touts why credit unions are the smart and savvy choice when it comes to financial benefits and freedom.
"We’ve learned that consumers are more likely to join a credit union after becoming informed about the financial benefits of having a relationship with a credit union and highly personalized service they offer to members," said Jon K. Gorman, Cornerstone Senior Vice President Communications & Outreach. "Our goal with the digital campaign is to reach and educate consumers where they are online about the power of credit unions with an approach that feels native to their Internet experience."
