We all know how important advocacy is in our industry -- especially when it comes to keeping our representatives well versed of what credit unions are doing for consumers these days. Nobody knows that better than League of Southeastern Credit Unions Senior Vice President Jared Ross. Jared's "lobbying" efforts has earned him the latest Credit Union Times Trailblazer 40 Below award.
So naturally, we invited League of Southeastern Credit Unions' Senior Vice President Jared Ross to come on the show and divulge his advocacy efforts -- of which he says is, well, a process. In this chat, he talks about some of his lobbying practices, such as helping credit unions not becoming irrelevant, building a foundation of communication and education, and to keep looking at ourselves.
You'll see what it all means during our candid conversation. We also touch on some of his advocacy successes and how credit unions can keep regulations from crushing their innovation. Check it out and enjoy!
