MADISON, Wis., and WASHINGTON (September 22, 2016) – Credit Union National Association has announced that its 2017 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference will be held February 26 to March 2 in Washington, D.C. The largest advocacy event in the credit union movement, CUNA GAC brings 5,000 credit union leaders to tell Congress about our 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.
