Young Professionals Advocacy Workshop scheduled Aug. 4-6

June 18, 2021

Young credit union professionals will have the opportunity to learn from CUNA and League advocacy experts on the best ways to advocate for the credit union movement at CUNA’s Young Professional Advocacy Workshop. The three-day virtual training will take place Aug. 4-6.

“Learning the ins and outs of effective advocacy is important for any credit union leader, especially early in their careers,” said Adam Engelman, CUNA director, federal grassroots and programs. “Getting young credit union leaders familiar with the advocacy process and the importance of building relationships with policymakers is essential to advancing credit union policies on all levels.”

In addition to CUNA and League experts, the training will feature guest speakers, a panel of Congressional staffers, and updates on the latest credit union priorities.

Attendees will develop the following skills:

  • Strengthening lobbying skills;
  • Developing legislative relationships;
  • Prepping for Congressional meetings; and
  • Working and coordinating with state Leagues.
