GAC 2014

Welcome to CUNA’s 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference

Thousands of leaders assemble behind a single cause and to Unite for Good.

February 13, 2014

At this very moment, thousands of credit union leaders are assembled here, in the nation’s capital, to rally behind a single cause and to Unite for Good.

Together, we will spend the next week driving positive change and propelling the movement forward through our shared strategic vision to be Americans’ best financial partner.

It is my great honor to welcome former Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to the 2014 GAC stage, as they join an influential lineup of lawmakers and industry policy experts who have gathered for this powerful week ahead of us.

Through their insights, this year’s conference sessions and networking opportunities will set the stage for us in achieving our legislative and regulatory goals.

Further, as our tax status is questioned, we have the responsibility to tell our story directly to legislators on Capitol Hill, rallying behind our unified cause to protect the credit union difference.

For the moment, I’d like to welcome you to Washington and thank you for your participation and dedication to the future of credit unions.

The movement owes its momentum to the combined voices of leaders like you and we have a big week ahead of us, so join the cause and enjoy the conference.

I look forward to making an impact at your side!

BILL CHENEY is president/CEO of CUNA.
