The 2017 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference will be held Feb. 26 to March 2 in Washington, D.C. The largest advocacy event in the credit union movement, CUNA GAC brings 5,000 credit union advocates to the nation’s capital to share the story about credit unions’ positive impact for Americans.
“CUNA GAC unites credit unions around our powerful cause,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “It’s a great conference and networking event. It’s our time to bring our message to Washington, D.C. Credit unions are different, and we make a difference for our more than 100 million members and their communities.”
Hill Hikes, coordinated together with the state credit union leagues, are at the heart of CUNA GAC. Credit union representatives from all 50 states visit Capitol Hill to meet with their representatives, start conversations on pivotal legislative and regulatory issues, and remind them of the benefit credit unions have on their constituents’ lives.
