WASHINGTON, D.C. (9/25/14)--Registration is now open for the Credit Union National Association's 2015 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), set for March 8-12 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
"From my time on the Hill, I know the power of a unified, positive message," said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. "I'm looking forward to joining forces with thousands of credit union influencers to bring our message to lawmakers in March."
CUNA's GAC is the credit union movement's largest conference, bringing more than 4,000 credit union executives and board members to advocate for credit unions in the nation's capital.
In addition to political advocacy, the GAC offers attendees networking opportunities, keynote speakers, industry-focused breakout sessions and the largest financial services exhibitor showcase.
World leaders such as Tony Blair, former prime minister of Britain, and Madeleine Albright, former U.S. secretary of state, have taken the stage to address credit union advocates at the GAC.
Other speakers include key regulatory officials from the National Credit Union Administration and members of the Congressional committees such as Senate Banking, House Financial Services and House Ways and Means.
