ATLANTA (12/16/13)--A Georgia magazine ranked Georgia Credit Union Affiliates (GCUA) as the No. 8 top trade association in the state in its latest issue.
Published by Insider Advantage, James Magazine is a political and news magazine for Georgia governmental and civic leaders.
"One of the most important aspects of working for a trade association is the ability to effectively advocate for that industry," said Cindy Connelly, GCUA senior vice president of government influence.
The magazine tapped Brandee Bickle, GCUA director of government affairs, as one of nine "Rising Stars" among the state's lobbyists.
Bickle's recognition is an example of GCUA's determination and drive to help credit unions succeed, said Stacy Tallent, CEO, Health Center CU, Augusta, and GCUA board chair.
