WASHINGTON (11/9/12)--ABBA tribute band ABBA The Concert will kick off the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference on Feb. 24 with a dazzling performance of ABBA's iconic hits, including Dancing Queen, Mama Mia, SOS and Take a Chance on Me.

The 2013 GAC lineup also features NBC News anchor and best-selling author Tom Brokaw and award-winning personal finance journalist and author Jean Chatzky, and more speakers and session topics will be announced in the weeks to come.

ABBA The Concert, featuring Waterloo the band, bills itself as "the best ABBA since ABBA." The tribute group was formed in 1996 and quickly became known for its stunningly ABBA-esque sound and performances. The group has always included two members of the original ABBA rhythm section, and has performed more than 1,000 shows in more than 20 countries worldwide.

CUNA Councils Vice President David Rohn said CUNA Councils is delighted to again sponsor the GAC-opening concert. "Sunday's show promises to be a memorable experience--a concert full of popular hits and high-energy fun that all attendees will enjoy," he added.

The 2013 GAC will run from Feb. 24-28 at the Washington Convention Center. The 2013 GAC theme, Powerful Cause, Positive Effect, reflects the credit union commitment to the 95 million working Americans who rely on credit unions every day.

CUNA's GAC is the credit union movement's premier political event and its largest national conference, each year providing more than 4,000 credit union executives and board members an opportunity to hear influential leaders from Congress, presidential administrations and federal regulatory agencies.

GAC attendees will also have the chance to meet directly with their members of Congress here in Washington.

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 for CUNA's GAC, which features presentations by top federal lawmakers and regulators, as well as break-out sessions on key credit union issues.
