Economic update added, pre-conference workshop set for state Government Affairs Conference
The State Government Affairs Conference, Jan 22-23 in Madison, is a must-attend event to protect the interests of the 2.3 million credit union members in our state. Most credit unions and Activists will qualify for at least one of our registration discounts. Plus, we've added an economic update from one of the state's top economists, John Koskinen, and detailed the pre-conference workshop agenda that will super-charge the experience for young professionals.
John Koskinen, Chief Economist with the
Wisconsin Department of Revenue (right), will offer insights on the
health of our local economy in 2013. He'll share what different sectors
of the economy – like construction and manufacturing – may
experience as well as the prospects for recent graduates and what credit
unions can expect by way of unemployment and economic growth in the
first part of next year.
Attendees will also hear from award-winning University of Wisconsin Professor Charles Franklin, who will share post-election analysis from his nationally recognized Marquette Law School Poll and Jeff Mayers, President of WisPolitics.com, who will facilitate a panel discussion on politics and policies.
You'll also want to attend to help honor a
long-time friend of credit unions, Racine Mayor and former League
Director of Government Affairs John Dickert, who will receive a plaque
recognizing his efforts to promote credit union business lending.
Young Professionals and first-time attendees will benefit from the pre-conference workshop that includes an intimate chat with legislators, Activist training and a panel of Activist speakers offering "best practice" ideas for increasing credit unions' political clout.
Your attendance is critical in that it will help:
