Monday at the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference started with the parade of flags in Washington, D.C. The annual advocacy event continued with a message from CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle, a keynote from futurist Peter Diamandis, and more from leaders and advocates across the credit union movement.
The following tweets give readers a glimpse of credit unions' premier event, which started Sunday and will wrap up Thursday with hikes on Capitol Hill:
