2023 MCUL GAC: Grassroots Advocacy and PAC Fundraising Awards

On May 3, during the 2023 Michigan Credit Union League Government Affairs Conference, the League recognized credit unions and activists that performed at a high level over the past year with a brief awards ceremony.

PAC fundraising comes from individual credit unions and chapters across the state working together to support our mission and industry. In 2022, Michigan credit unions raised more than $608,000 to support our advocacy agenda.

The following is a complete list of this year’s winners:

Gold Star Awards Winners: 

Chairman’s Award (State) 

This is designated in asset categories and given to those who raised the highest percentage over their state PAC fundraising goal.

This year’s State Chairman’s Award winners are:

Lon Bone Grassroots Award Winner

The 2023 recipient of the Lone Bone Grassroots Professional Activist Award is PFCU’s former CEO Harvey Hoskins.

When it comes to recognizing the importance of grassroots activity and political fundraising, PFCU has provided an exceptional example for a very long time with Harvey Hoskins at the helm. Over the years, he has engaged at a high level, running successful programs and has been a key supporter for the Michigan credit union industry’s advocacy efforts.

“Harvey has been a central figure for PFCU’s continued success in the advocacy space over the last 33 years,” said Director of State Advocacy Haleigh Krombeen. “He encourages and empowers his team to get involved in advocacy efforts at all levels … His team is always involved in our advocacy events at the chapter, state and federal level, providing valuable insight in these meetings.”
