NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (10/30/15)--South Carolina state lawmakers shared their connection to credit unions during a recent legislative night hosted by the Lowcountry Credit Union Chapter of the Carolinas Credit Union League (CCUL).
More than 170 credit union representatives attended the annual legislative night that included networking opportunities with legislators, including state Sens. Paul Campbell (R-Goose Creek) and Larry Grooms (R-Charleston), state Rep. Joe Daning (R-Goose Creek) as well as state Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman.
“Having elected officials see and meet our credit union advocates is extremely valuable in advocacy,” said Billy Boylston, CCUL director of governmental affairs (In the Loop Oct. 29). “When discussing how legislation impacts our credit unions in the state, it is important that legislators know I am fighting for constituents in their districts.”
Daning, a member of the supervisory board of South Carolina FCU, North Charleston, talked about his connection to credit unions and the important role they play in the community.
Grooms provided an update of state legislative activities, including the status of transportation network company legislation.
Spearman spoke about the importance of financial literacy and thanked credit unions for their work in this area. She shared how impressed she was with credit unions that have student-run branches in high schools.
