Minnesota CUs take part in Co-op Day at Capitol
ST. PAUL, Minn. (3/25/09)--Representatives from Minnesota credit unions and the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) joined forces with the Cooperative Network on March 11, to take part in the first annual Co-op Day at the Capitol in St. Paul. Attended by more than 75 participants, the new grassroots event was offered to representatives from cooperative businesses in all industries to educate elected officials about the uniqueness of co-ops, discuss legislative issues and build long-term relationships. Cooperative Network is the Minnesota and Wisconsin trade association of cooperative businesses. It serves more than 600 member cooperatives, including credit unions.

Three individuals from the MnCUN, along with three representatives from SPIRE FCU, Falcon Heights, and one from Postal CU, Woodbury, attended the event. “It’s important that all credit unions remember that we are a part of the larger co-op community, and just as important for our legislators to identify us as members of the greater cooperative family,” said Neil Christy, MnCUN vice president of education and credit union development, and Cooperative Network board member. “It is very rewarding to work with the representatives of other co-ops to advance the cause for cooperative member/owners throughout the state,” Christy added.
