Legislative Trip to Richmond

Date and Time: 
01/25/2011 (All day)

Representatives from the Piedmont Chapter will travel to Richmond to meet with our local legislators. There will not be an official "Credit Union Day on the Hill" this year. While there are no pressing issues before the VA General Assembly which affect credit unions or the finance industry, there is still a strong need to keep in touch with legislators. When issues do arise they will be reminded how important credit unions are to the financial well-being and stability of our state.

The Most Dangerous Legislation I've Seen...

"This is the most dangerous piece of legislation I've seen in more than 30 years working in this industry." These were the words of Darrell Minniear, President of Martinsville DuPont Credit Union, as he spoke with the delegation from the Piedmont Chapter which made the trip to Richmond on January 28th. House Bill 482 and Senate Bill 440 would essentially make it possible for a bank to acquire a state chartered credit union while simultaneously decimating the equity that members have built up over the years. The Piedmont Chapter of Credit Unions is asking you, the members and employees of all credit unions in Southside Virginia, to stand with us in opposition to this bill.

Please visit this link for more details on how you can contact your elected representatives to voice your opinion and opposition to HB 482/SB 440. ...keep reading
