Mark Oct. 12 for ‘Capitol Day' CORRECTED (Misc News: September 2, 2011)
Mark your calendar for the 2011 Credit Union Week ‘Capitol Day’ event that will once again be held in Michigan's capital city. This annual credit union grassroots lobbying event will be on Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the Mackinac Room on the fifth floor of the Anderson House Office Building at 124 N. Capitol Ave.
Credit union people will make the trek to Lansing to meet with their state lawmakers to socialize, discuss legislative issues of concern and increase the visibility of credit unions in Lansing. Capitol Day participants will meet in the Mackinac Room at 10 a.m. for a legislative issues briefing followed by a Legislative Luncheon with lawmakers and their aides that will arrive at 11:30 a.m.
During the luncheon, resolutions in honor of Credit Union Week will be presented and then afterwards members are free to meet on their own with lawmakers and staff not attending the luncheon or head to the Capitol to watch the House session live. It is important that staff and volunteers representing every MCUL chapter across the state participate in Capitol Day.
We want to make sure that every lawmaker in attendance has an opportunity to meet with constituents from his or her home district. Click here to learn more about Capitol Day.
