Minnesota network trains political advocates
ST. PAUL, Minn. (3/3/08)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) held a training session for its new Political and Grassroots Network (PGN) last week in conjunction with Credit Union Day at the Capitol, Minnesota credit unions’ annual lobby day. PGN was launched earlier this year to enhance Minnesota credit union’s political advocacy efforts and involvement in MnCUN’s Grassroots Education and Action Team (GREAT). At the training session, staff provided an overview of grassroots, detailed credit unions’ past success with grassroots efforts and discussed Project Zip Code, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA)’s program to determine constituents by zip code. PGN contacts were encouraged to recruit volunteers for the GREAT program, political fundraising and payroll deduction. Attendees also learned about Minnesota’s revised grassroots activism website, www.greatcreditunions.org. “We are excited to form this new political network and look forward to increased opportunities to expand credit unions’ involvement and effectiveness in grassroots activities,” said Mara Humphrey, MnCUN vice president of governmental affairs. “By bringing credit unions together with the network and CUNA, we can work in sync to accomplish our goals and strengthen the credit union movement.” For more information on nationwide grassroots efforts and CUNA’s advocacy training programs, use the link.
