GAC Keynote speakers announced, last chance to join

CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) is always an impactful experience with opportunities to hear from world-class speakers, network with more than 5,000 of your fellow credit union leaders, and meet with hundreds of potential business partners. This year is no different with former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, and President Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, presenting. Additionally, the League will host our traditional welcome reception for Ohio attendees Sunday evening and the annual state dinner Tuesday evening.

While we know getting away from the credit union for the entire GAC can be challenging, it’s extremely important to personally share your credit union’s story with federal lawmakers who make decisions that impact credit union operations. The League and CUNA are offering two fly-in options to join your peers and strengthen the Movement’s voice. Attend the February 26 keynote address by former White House officials Stephanie Cutter and Nicolle Wallace for a discounted rate of $220, or simply purchase a flight to fly-in on February 26 for a legislative briefing lunch followed by the League-led Hill visits with Ohio’s Congressional delegation.

If you still can’t get away, be sure to sign up for our new grassroots tool VoterVoice so you can still have your voice heard and advocate on behalf of Ohio’s credit unions. By including your e-mail and ZIP code, you’ll be able to participate in a special call to action the week of GAC with just a click of a button. Please reach out to Director of Legislative and Political Affairs Cory Fleming or Manager of Legislative and Political Advocacy Andrew Canan with any questions.
