CU House event draws congressional leaders

WASHINGTON (5/22/08)--A May 14 event at Credit Union House in Washington, D.C. brought together a number of congressional leaders and included representation from staff at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee event was sponsored by the Minority Hotel Owners and Operators, and hosted by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), a member of the House Financial Services Committee. Waters extended her gratitude toward credit union people for having a nice venue that she could use for the event.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) addressed attendees at the event, and also commented positively on Credit Union House. Congressional members present at the event included: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.); House Ways and Means Committee Chair Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.); Rep Joe Crowley, Ways and Means Committee member (D-N.Y.); Rep. Al Green, Financial Services Committee member (D-Texas); Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.); Rep. John Conyers, Judiciary Committee Chairman (D-Mich,); and Delegate Donna Christensen (D-Vt.).

CUNA was the only group outside of the sponsors present at the event. Ryan Donovan, CUNA vice president of legislative affairs, had a chance to interact with Waters and Hoyer. Trey Hawkins, CUNA political director; and Anne Foley, CUNA political program specialist, also attended. Credit Union House was established by the CUNA and the state leagues in 2001. It was designed, in part, to provide CUNA members with quick access to lawmakers' offices, as well as a home away from home for both work and rest during Hill visits. It also is intended to offer a convenient and inviting place to hold events.
