ONTARIO, Calif. (1/7/15)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues confirmed they will have a private session with National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board member J. Mark McWatters during the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C.
"We are very excited to provide this unique opportunity for our members to hear directly from--and have an open dialog with--the NCUA's newest board member," said Sharon Lindeman, vice president of regulatory advocacy for the leagues (In the News Jan. 6).
The McWatters meeting is scheduled for March 10 in the leagues' hospitality suite at the Washington Convention Center.
GAC speakers include Stanley McChrystal, retired U.S. Army general and former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, and Arianna Huffington, co-founder and current editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post.
The Senate will be in session during the GAC, although the House is scheduled to have a district work week.
"Efforts to reach out to Congress during the GAC will be strong," said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle (News Now Nov. 24). "The Senate will be in session during those dates, and key House and Senate staff members will certainly be on the Hill. Our meetings with these professionals have traditionally been very valuable."
