CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), the largest credit union advocacy gathering of its kind, will again unite credit union activists from across the country under the unique and inclusive CUNA tent.

The meeting, under the marquee “Powerful Cause, Positive Effect,” brings together nearly 5,000 activists to build and renew relationships, learn from and be inspired by national leaders, and take a forceful and unmistakable CUNA advocacy voice to Capitol Hill.

CUNA GAC is a significant event. Some fun facts about our meeting:

  • Attendees occupy an impressive 13,000 hotel rooms spread across at least 10 hotels in Washington, D.C.
  • The General Session hall alone holds nearly 4,500 seats.
  • Our trade expo—the largest in the credit union industry— will have more than 300 booths, the largest of which is 2,000 square feet. One thousand people representing more than 200 organizations will be on hand to meet and talk with credit union volunteers and staff.

The elected officials who speak to our assembly are always a key feature of the GAC. In these highly-charged partisan times, it’s notable that members of Congress from both sides of the aisle again will speak about how they value their work with CUNA to advance a pro-credit union agenda in Congress.

With nearly 5,000 activists in Washington for this event, our CUNA advocacy army will stand above other groups as we descend on Capitol Hill to make our case for regulatory relief, increased consumer access to credit union services, new public policy, and preserving the not-for-profit tax status of credit unions.
