Jam the Unicam
It’s the political event of the year for state legislative affairs. Whether your credit union is federally chartered or state chartered, what happens in the Unicameral has an impact on your members. Did you know that over 50% of the members of Congress, and five of the past six U.S. Presidents were previously state lawmakers? Of Nebraska’s congressional delegation, one Congressman and both U.S. Senators were previously state lawmakers!
This event is traditionally held in Lincoln at the beginning of each year to coincide with the start of the legislative session and will be held on February 10, 2016 from 11 am – 5 pm. Nebraska’s credit unions will learn more about the legislative issues that are before the State Legislature and how they will impact them and their members. It also serves as an opportunity to meet with our elected representatives in Lincoln. It is critical to the future of credit unions that our lawmakers at the state and local levels understand and appreciate the credit union difference. Remember, one day your local mayor or state senator could be voting on the credit union tax exempt status in Congress. How he or she votes will largely depend on the relationship they’ve had with you and your credit union over the years prior to them being elected to Congress.

Nebraska credit unions will host the Carnival for Kids on Tuesday, March 8, 2016. The events are held in the Children’s Hospital lobby for the children staying at the hospital or simply coming in to any of there outpatient care clinics. Their siblings are also welcome to attend. The carnival games, prizes, activities and crafts allow kids to be kids, forgetting for a brief period of time about their illness and treatment. The carnival also gives credit unions another way to give back to their community and provide credit union volunteers a chance to see first hand what our fundraising efforts are supporting.
To make this event happen, donations of $300 and 10-12 volunteers are needed. Your credit union can choose to make a financial donation towards the costs of the event or by providing volunteers to help. All carnivals are held from 10:30 – 11:30 am in the lobby of Children’s Hospital at 8301 West Dodge Road, Omaha, NE. Volunteers will need to arrive by 10:15 am and be finished at 11:45 am.
