ValleyStar Credit Union CEO Mike Warrell and representatives from the Board of Directors presented a $10,000 donation to the Virginia Credit Union League (VACUL) in Richmond, Virginia on Credit Union Day to help fund the League’s efforts to advocate on behalf of Virginia’s credit unions.
The VACUL works to build a supportive network of lawmakers who can create a positive legislative and regulatory environment for Virginia’s credit unions. The VACUL counts on credit union advocates, such as ValleyStar employees, to help educate state lawmakers about the “Credit Union Difference” and fight for credit union-backed legislation.
“President of the Virginia Credit Union League, Carrie Hunt, has made a significant impact in her two years with the league by getting important bills passed with State legislators,” Mike Warrell said. “Our donation will help strengthen their dedication to shape and protect credit unions throughout the Commonwealth.”
ValleyStar employees will also join Carrie Hunt and the Virginia Credit Union League in February at the Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., to help educate Federal lawmakers about the “Credit Union Difference” and our impact on their constituents throughout Virginia.
