CUs converge on national convention
DENVER (8/25/08)--Staff and volunteers from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), state leagues and corporates aim to raise the profile of credit unions during this week's Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Denver. The four-day convention happens Monday through Thursday. Credit unions also will participate in the Republican National Convention happening next week in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn. CUNA and credit unions have been involved in these national events since 1988, according to CUNA Senior Vice President of Political Affairs Richard Gose. Among each day’s plethora of events, CUNA is sponsoring the National Journal’s Convention Daily Briefings, which feature party newsmakers. A convention version of the CUNA-sponsored Power Breakfast, the on-site events are moderated by Atlantic Media political director Ron Brownstein, The Hotline's Amy Walter, Charlie Cook and Chris Matthews. On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) and other elected officials will join CUNA and the leagues, the Democratic National Convention Committee, National Journal Group and Homes for Our Troops in a ceremony to turn over a new home to wounded Iraq war veteran Staff Sergeant Travis Strong and his family. Meanwhile, CUNA Editorial Communication Vice President David Klavitter will provide frequent convention updates using Twitter. The service allows instant, extremely short online postings--limited to no more than 140 characters each. CUNA News Now will provide complete coverage of credit union participation in the convention. Use the resource link below for more information about Homes for Our Troops.
