Washington
2010 edition of CUNAs GAC kicks off today
WASHINGTON (2/22/10)—As the new rules imposed by the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 come into effect, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) today will also kick off the 2010 edition of its Government Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan will address the GAC, and former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean will take part in a lively "point-counterpoint" discussion on national issues with former Republican congressman and media personality Joe Scarborough. Also this week, National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz, NCUA Vice Chair Gigi Hyland, NCUA Board Member Michael Fryzel and Small Business Administrator Karen Mills are scheduled to speak during GAC general sessions. Several key lawmakers will also address the GAC, including:
* Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.); * House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.); * Ranking Republican member of the House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama; * Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.); * House Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.); * Reps. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), key sponsors of legislation that would increase the member business lending cap for credit unions; and many more.
The GAC also willfeature breakout sessions on the NCUA’s recent corporate credit union proposal, compliance issues, social media, alternative capital, and credit union advocacy, and CUNA will present a live edition of its Home & Family Finance Radio during the conference. The 2010 GAC will be the third straight GAC to take place in the Washington Convention Center. Use the resource link below for more GAC information.
