It was a legislative day of advocacy in all its many forms; voices seeking to be heard.

Later that evening as the day concluded, lawmakers welcomed the chance to visit with constituents at the Association Executives of North Carolina’s (AENC) 2018 Legislative Reception which honors members of the General Assembly. North Carolina’s credit unions were well represented, joined by the Carolinas Credit Union League’s Dan Schline and Evelyn Hawthorne.

“Credit unions connecting with lawmakers early and often – that is the way good relationships are built. We really appreciate our credit unions for coming to Raleigh for this event and for all of their efforts to communicate with lawmakers,” said Hawthorne.
