Dates set for 75th FCUA anniversary event
WASHINGTON (9/3/08)—National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board member Gigi Hyland announced the date of her free, two-day symposium recognizing the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Federal Credit Union Act (FCUA). It will be held here on Capitol Hill June 9-10. The event, celebrating 75 years of federal credit union history while providing a forum to discuss the future of federal credit unions in the 21st century, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington. The program agenda will focus on the current financial marketplace, the importance of federal deposit insurance, opportunities for credit unions to serve all segments of their field of membership and opportunities for modernization of the FCUA, according to an NCUA announcement. The FCUA was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 26, 1934. The symposium will be one in a series of commemorative efforts the NCUA plans to undertake to highlight the landmark anniversary. Celebration of the 100th anniversary of America's credit unions, the 75th anniversary of the FCUA, and the 75th anniversary of Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will all be a major focus of CUNA's 2009 America's Credit Union Conference & Expo June 21-24 in Boston, Mass., next year. "We will be pulling out all the stops to make next year's America's Credit Union Conference an historic event in one of the nation's most historic cities," commented CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica.
