ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – The New Jersey Credit Union League is among the exhibitors this week at the New Jersey League of Municipalities Convention & Annual Meeting in Atlantic City. The convention is attended by more than 20,000 local, county, and state officials and provides an excellent opportunity to bring credit union messages to state and local lawmakers and policy leaders from around the state.

In addition to providing the opportunity to speak one-on-one with lawmakers, the conference is invaluable from a business development standpoint as well. Visitors to the League booth can pick up copies of our legislative newsletter, information on Financial Reality Fairs, and other brochures and flyers that tell the good story of New Jersey’s credit unions.
