Board chair, 121 Financial CU
Jacksonville, Fla

The speakers are always top-notch and this year is no exception. I really value the networking opportunities with other attendees, too. We’ll be taking a group up to the Hill on Wednesday to meet with our elected officials—that part of the conference is so important. If you can go to only one credit union conference, this is the one to go to.

Karen Knowlton

EVP of business development, Champion CU
Canton, N.C.

This is my first GAC, but I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. I spent 30 years in the for-profit banking sector, and now I’ve been in the credit union movement for about four years. I really appreciate how credit unions collaborate and share resources. I’m here to network, take part in the Hill visits, and learn more about the risk-based capital issue.

Director, Suncoast CU
Tampa, Fla.

I’m here to learn more about the risk-based capital issue, and I’m excited that people from our credit union will visit with our elected officials on the Hill. Suncoast was very active in the Don’t Tax My CU campaign. I think we generated 40,000 responses. I remember my father coming to the GAC when I was younger, and now I’m here for my first GAC. My dad is on the board of Velocity Community CU in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
