2022 Oklahoma Ambassador Program

Become an ambassador for credit unions! The Oklahoma Credit Union Association is launching its new Ambassador Program for the 2022 Regular Session of the Oklahoma State Legislature. Let us take the mystery out of political engagement and empower your ability to advocate for credit unions.  

Led by OKCUA Executive Director Nate Webb, a veteran of national and state politics, the Ambassador Program offers an outstanding opportunity for credit union employees to gain hands-on experience at the Oklahoma State Capitol.  

Only five people will be accepted for each session. Participation in the Ambassador Program is complimentary to Cornerstone-member credit unions.
