California credit union leaders can watch the recap video and discussion from the California Credit Union League’s “2020 Post-Election Review” this past week by clicking here (use passcode 0rCJ1yj#), where the League’s political advocacy team provides critical updates after the Nov. 3 election and going into 2021.

In the recap, the League’s federal, state, grassroots and advocacy experts provide a unique perspective for credit unions on the impact of the presidential election, congressional forecast, and state legislative projection for California. Also, the election dynamics of the California Assembly versus the Senate, state versus national legislative committees (chairs and leadership), and state ballot propositions were discussed.

During this election cycle, more than 16.6 million ballots were cast in California with a 75.32 percent voter turnout (versus 75.3 percent in 2016). However, 1.4 million ballots are still unprocessed as of Nov. 10 at 6 p.m.

Additionally, an update was given on potential federal stimulus legislation in Congress and other possible issues impacting credit unions, including data security, general banking, and cannabis banking.

Credit union leaders were asked what their role in credit union advocacy is, what they will do to shape the movement’s future, and how engaged they will be in advocacy going forward. Don’t miss this informative discussion — watch it today! (use passcode 0rCJ1yj#)
