CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle and former Secretary of State John Kerry were the highlights of a busy first full day of general sessions Monday at the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). A record-breaking more than 5,300 credit union leaders were in attendance for the day’s events, which also saw Nussle make a surprise announcement about a guest speaker Tuesday.
Vice President Mike Pence will address CUNA GAC Tuesday morning. Pence’s visit follows up last year’s successful GAC in which Nussle and a group of credit unions met with President Donald Trump to discuss their support for the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, which was later signed into law.
Other highlights of Monday at CUNA GAC include:
In addition to Pence, Tuesday’s agenda is jam-packed with speakers, including author Malcolm Gladwell, Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), NCUA Chairman J. Mark McWatters and board member Rick Metsger.
