2014 CUNA GAC Is Feb. 23-27
WASHINGTON (9/19/13)--The Credit Union National Association announced today that its 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference will be held in Washington, D.C. from Feb. 23-27 and registration is open. CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney urged all member credit unions to use this one-year anniversary of CUNA's launch of the Unite for Good vision as a rallying point for the credit union system to accomplish an unprecedented "boots on the ground" presence in Washington.   It was at last year's GAC, considered the credit union movement's premier national

conference, that CUNA and the state credit union leagues presented a bold new, overarching strategic vision for the credit union movement: A vision in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner."
 
"We have great momentum behind our shared vision. In February we will continue the push forward," Cheney said.
 
He emphasized that with the credit union tax status in peril as Washington policymakers considered tax code reforms, and with banks executing attacks on credit unions at every chance, credit unions must take this opportunity to show their numbers to all members of the U.S. Congress.
 
"We need to rally the biggest GAC crowd yet to take part in Capitol Hill visits and share the story of the credit union difference. We need you to join your peers and Unite for Good," Cheney urged.
 
Recognized as the key conference to attend for political impact, credit union networking and industry updates, the GAC also offers a wide array of educational breakout sessions, the industry's largest exhibitor showcase, guest/family programs to tour Washington's sights, and special entertainment including an opening concert and the closing Gala Reception and Dance.
 
Registration is now open and keynote and other speakers and session topics will be announced in the weeks to come. For more information, follow the @CUNA on Twitter and the hashtag #CUNAGAC, and watch News Now for details.
