LATHAM, N.Y. – CUNA’s GAC held in February was an opportunity for credit unions to meet their Congressional delegates and discuss credit union issues with them, as well as thank them for their support and commitment to credit unions. The New York State Credit Union League used the event as a backdrop to present Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) with their 2002 Legislator of the Year Award. The award, presented by League President/CEO Bill Mellin, recognizes a distinguished legislator who has shown outstanding commitment to issues of importance to New York credit unions. Mellin thanked Crowley for his co-sponsorship and support of bankruptcy reform legislation. The congressman pledged to continue to work for bankruptcy reform.
