Advocacy in Action Takes Center Stage

The Mountain West Credit Union Association Advocacy in Action experience culminates next week. The event series includes virtual Hike the Hill events, as well as a collaborative event with the Northwest Credit Union Association to bring legislators together to discuss the growing need to provide more financial services to cannabis businesses.  All our events will be held virtually and managed through the MWCUA app. Please note that all the Hike the Hill visits with legislators are subject to change, and we may be adding visits to this list. Please be sure to check the app regularly for updates.
