WASHINGTON (11/17/14)--The former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan--Stanley McChrystal--will be a featured speaker at the 2015 Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). McChrystal is widely praised for creating a revolution in the military that fused intelligence and operations through his no-nonsense, innovative leadership.
"Gen. McChrystal has an outstanding record of innovation, teamwork and forward-thinking, which will coalesce into a cogent message for credit unions," said Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO.
"We are delighted that CUNA Councils is sponsoring a new Sunday general session to bring his insights to credit unions; it's an honor to welcome Gen. McChrystal to this year's GAC." McChrystal will address conference attendees on Sunday, March 8.
McChrystal has 34 years of service and a remarkable record as a four-star general, former commander of U.S. and International Forces in Afghanistan, and the former leader of Joint Special Operations Command.
The author of The New York Times best-selling leadership book My Share of the Task: A Memoir, McChrystal shares his experiences serving with many outstanding leaders and the few leaders he learned not to emulate. He paints a vivid picture of the trials and tribulations that led to his successful and innovative, going-the-distance leadership skills.
The credit union movement's premiere event, the CUNA GAC gathers more than 4,000 credit union supporters and activists in the nation's capital to bring their message to Congress and federal regulators, create awareness about credit unions generally, remove barriers to credit union service for more consumers, and discuss topics and techniques that serve to foster service excellence to credit union members.
The GAC also provides credit union participants the opportunity to network with their peers, attend hot-issue educational sessions and hear from key members of Congress and top federal regulators about the issues facing credit unions.
