Register now for the state Government Affairs Conference


The State Government Affairs Conference, Jan 22-23 in Madison, is a must-attend event. Register now to give your credit union a presence and highlight the strength of the credit union movement in Wisconsin.

Racine Mayor and former League Director of Government Affairs John Dickert will address our group.


Plan to attend because:

  • Your members need your voice to promote and protect their interests among newly-elected lawmakers. Attendees will visit with all 131 legislative offices. With the upcoming election and recent redistricting process, participants may have new state legislators to introduce to their credit union. This event is your opportunity to meet with legislators representing you, your credit union and your members to explain the CU Difference, the regulatory challenges you face and how you're providing needed services and support to your members and communities. By strengthening your relationship with legislators at these meetings, they will better understand how to vote on the issues important to your CU and the 2.3 million members in Wisconsin.


  • Legislators need your guidance before they complete the state budget. State GAC gives participants the opportunity to reach legislators just as the budget process begins. The budget can be crucial in that measures that are either helpful or hurtful to credit unions can become part of this massive legislation, over which public debate often becomes focused only on a few key issues. We must ensure that legislators understand credit unions' perspectives so that credit unions' and members' interests are protected.


  • You'll gain insights from top political observers and key legislators. Award-winning Marquette University Law School Professor Charles Franklin will share his post-election analysis and Jeff Mayers, President of will facilitate a panel discussion on politics and policies. Racine Mayor and former League Director of Government Affairs John Dickert will also address the group, as well as state lawmakers who are the most relevant and influential for financial institutions.


  • There's a registration deal for everyone! Take advantage of $99 registration for young professionals (includes a pre-conference workshop Jan. 21), first-timers and Conduit Account holders. Also get up to 2 free registrations by being a Payroll Deduction CU, and by adding five new employees to the program by January 4.
