N.Y. state lawmakers stress importance of face-to-face visits
ALBANY, N.Y. (3/28/14)--Opportunities for one-on-one time with lawmakers can be few and far between. That's why New York State legislators are encouraging credit union leaders to come to Albany April 28-30 for the Credit Union Association of New York's State Governmental Affairs Conference (The Point March 27).

Credit union leaders who attend will have many chances to sit down with the elected officials who represent them.

"Credit unions and credit union members are a key part of my constituency," said Sen. Joseph Griffo (R-Rome). "It's important for me to know what challenges they're facing and what I can do to help address those challenges. By spending face-to-face time together during events like the association's Governmental Affairs Conference, we can keep the dialogue open."

Assemblywoman Annette Robinson (D-Brooklyn), who chairs the Assembly's bank committee, said it's important for credit union leaders to share their "valuable insights," no matter if they relate to legislative reform or local community initiatives.

"Relationships are built on communication," added Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney (R-New Hartford). "So it's critical that we as elected representatives hear from our constituents. For groups like credit unions that have such a significant impact on their communities, participating in the political process is extremely important."
