CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will be hosting its annual Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) from February 23-27, 2014, and there is still time to register for this important event. The GAC is the single largest gathering of credit union officials, volunteers, and executives held in the nation each year. A tremendous number of high profile speakers from lawmakers to business leaders will be addressing the event. The GAC also features a truly impressive exhibit hall and great opportunities to network with credit union peers from around the nation.
Among the speakers that have been announced are Tony Blair the Prime Minister of Britain and Northern Ireland from 1997 through 2007 and Madeline Albright who served as the United States Secretary of State from 1997 through 2000.
CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney urged all member credit unions to use this one-year anniversary of CUNA's launch of the Unite for Good vision as a rallying point for the credit union system to accomplish an unprecedented "boots on the ground" presence in Washington. It was at last year's GAC, considered the credit union movement's premier national conference, that CUNA and the state credit union leagues presented a bold, new, overarching strategic vision for the credit union movement: A vision in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner."
"We need to rally the biggest GAC crowd yet to take part in Capitol Hill visits and share the story of the credit union difference. We need you to join your peers and Unite for Good," Cheney urged.
