CU System
Utah CUs have their day on the hill
SALT LAKE CITY (2/17/11)--The Utah Credit Union Association held a Credit Union Day on the Hill Tuesday at the state Capitol, and invited state legislators and credit union representatives to meet during lunch. About 50 of the 75 state house representatives and roughly 85 credit union presidents, board members, executives, and management staff attended. Several members of the house leadership attended, including Speaker Becky Lockhart (R-64) and Majority Leader Brad Dee (R-11). “It is really important for you have some low-key interaction with these policy makers to establish relationships,” said Utah Credit Union Association President Scott Simpson, in thanking those credit union executives who attended. State Rep. David Butterfield (R-4) and chief marketing and operations officer at USU Charter CU in Logan, made it a point to meet and talk to as many people as possible, said the association. Credit union representatives were happy to see another credit union employee as part of the legislature, knowing he could represent the interests of credit unions, said the association. The association played a role in helping Butterfield get elected. At the event, Utah’s credit unions provided legislators a take-away card with facts about the state’s Utah credit unions. Credit union representatives talked with legislators seated at their tables. Afterward the association’s Government Affairs Committee commented on its success in informing legislators of credit unions’ concerns with legislation this session.
