New Hampshire Legislative Advocacy
The Association is an active advocate for credit unions on both the state and federal level. In order to be successful in that role, it must gather information, construct compelling and coherent arguments, organize support, communicate effectively, and be persistent before Congress and the New Hampshire General Court.
Each year there are numerous legislative filings that are of importance to the credit union community in New Hampshire. Some are filings designed to help credit unions serve their members better, and some are broad based bills that have an effect on all sectors of the financial services industry. The Association closely monitors all of these proposals and, when appropriate, advocates for the credit union position in every forum.

State Advocacy Day
New Hampshire’s Legislative Reception and Regulatory Roundtable is marked annually by impactful dialogue with lawmakers and local regulators. The event presents ideal forums at which member credit unions discuss local issues, display advocacy efforts and accomplishments, and continue to develop and deepen relationships between New Hampshire credit unions and policymakers. The Day is timed to maximize legislative dialogue during an active legislative session, to be combined with a regulatory roundtable and to take action conveniently near the State House in Concord.
