COLUMBIA, S.C., and RALEIGH, N.C. (12/12/14)--The Carolinas Credit Union League introduced the Carolinas Capital Club this month for credit union political advocates from both North Carolina and South Carolina.
"The message is simple and well received: contributing to the Carolinas Capital Club bolsters our advocacy efforts," said league President/CEO John Radebaugh (In the Loop Dec. 11). "Through it, we can influence the process and help shape a political climate that preserves, protects and enhances the credit union charter."
The political action committee's inaugural year is 2015, during which the league aims to reach a goal of $150,000. The league's advocacy team is traveling around the state, talking to credit union employees about the importance of political engagement.
The Carolinas Capital Club website will track contribution levels and facilitate contact with advocacy staff regarding key relationships and local insight.
