Louisiana CUs advocacy efforts set a record
HARAHAN, La. (12/26/08)--The Louisiana Credit Union League’s (LCUL) Political Action Committee (PAC) is closing the books on its most successful year ever. LCUL PAC 2008 receipts total more than $100,000, a 12% increase from 2007 receipts. The Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) will use the resources to contribute to and support state and federal officials that support the goals and priorities of the credit union movement. “We have soared past the goals that people thought were unreachable,” said Sidney Parfait, CULAC chairman, attributing the efforts to hard work by CULAC representatives in each chapter and individuals in credit unions. All nine chapters exceeded their goals for the year by holding fundraisers and special events. League President/CEO Anne Cochran commended the volunteers, professionals and members for supporting the credit union movement. “Thanks to the exceptional efforts we have been able to support credit union friendly candidates at the state and federal level,” she said.
