PODCAST: GAC conversations

Some of our favorite discussions from the premier credit union advocacy event.

March 16, 2023

Nearly 6,000 credit union advocates descended upon Washington, D.C., for the 2023 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, where conversations ranged from advocacy priorities to financial well-being for all to the operational challenges facing credit unions.

CUNA editors took part in many conversations at the CUNA News Podcast booth during the event. Here are four of our favorites:

  • Day Matthews, chief legal officer and general counsel for Local Government Federal Credit Union in Raleigh, N.C., looks at the top risks facing her credit union.
  • Jason Lindstrom, president/CEO at Evergreen Credit Union in Portland, Maine, shares how Evergreen supports its members and local community.
  • Deborah Fears, president/CEO at Chicago Post Office Employees Credit Union, and Tom Sakash, CUNA’s manager of small credit union initiatives. They examine some of the challenges facing small credit unions.
  • Rachel Pross, chief operations officer at Maps Credit Union in Salem, Ore. She details some of the challenges and opportunities involved with cannabis banking.

You can listen to the CUNA News Podcast in Apple’s iTunes Store, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher Radio.
