The lawmakers addressed CEOs and other credit union professionals who attended the conference, hosted by the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, despite single-digit temperatures, snow and icy roads. Special guest, as portrayed by David Landis, was the late, former Nebraska U.S. Sen. George Norris, the author of the 20th Amendment and lifelong credit union supporter. Feb. 9 was declared New Mexico Credit Union Day through a House Memorial introduced by New Mexico State Rep. Jane Powdrell-Culbert (R-44). The proclamation recognizes the state’s credit unions for helping members improve their economic status, teaching financial literacy to the state’s young people and improving their communities through numerous projects for more than 75 years.
