Best part: you do not have to be registered for PIVOT 2020 to participate so get your wallets ready!

During PIVOT 2020, we will be periodically updating our infamous CULAC Challenge board. Beat the clock and make sure you get your contributions in on time. Additionally, our silent auction has some of the coolest items to bid on with all proceeds going to the Louisiana Credit Union Foundation. Take a sneak peek of the items up for grabs!

2020 State Legislative Session Recap: New Laws Affecting Louisiana Credit Unions
The Louisiana Legislature kicked off the 2020 session on March 9. However, proceedings were suspended five days in to help stem community spread of the coronavirus. Special session reconvened on Monday, June 1 and adjourned on June 30 with COVID-19 related bills taking priority on the floor and limited constituent engagement in committee meetings due to safety concerns.

During the course of the session, there were a limited number of bills that would directly impact credit unions in some capacity. What do these new laws mean for you? With the help of LCUL's strategic partner Kudulis, Risinger, Price (KRP) Law Firm, we've put together a summary of those bills and the impact they will have on Louisiana credit unions.

While session is adjourned for now, our work isn't over. We continue to advocate at the federal level for the next COVID-19 relief package and are preparing for an anticipated second special state legislative session in October.
