WASHINGTON (2/12/14)--The Credit Union National Association has just announced a new feature for this year's Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). The program will include a new media panel session featuring accomplished journalists who will discuss in-depth how credit unions can better communicate their message to the media.
The session is scheduled for Feb. 24 at 2:25 p.m. (ET).
The panel, to be moderated by former Washington, D.C. anchorman Paul Berry, showcases Fox News' Tucker Carlson, the Washington Post's Ylan Mui, and Politico's Lauren French.
Carlson is currently the co-host of "FOX & Friends Weekend," as well as the editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller.
Mui is a Washington Post reporter and CNBC contributor covering the Federal Reserve and the economy. She has spent more than a decade at the Post and has written on topics ranging from subprime lending, consumer finance, to retail issues and education.
Lauren French is a tax reporter for POLITICO Pro and author of Morning Tax--a daily tip sheet focused on tax policy news on Capitol Hill, lobbying and the Internal Revenue Service.
The discussion will cover news of the day, the political climate, the role of the media, and how credit unions can improve interactions with news outlets to better convey the credit union difference. A question-and-answer period with the audience will follow the presentation.
The media panel adds to CUNA's power-backed list of distinguished speakers at the GAC, including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
The conference--credit unions' largest and most important of the year--is expected to draw more than 4,000 credit union supporters from across the country. It will be held Feb. 23-27 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center here.
