GAC housing sign-up deadline is extended
WASHINGTON (1/7/10)—There has been a deadline extension to Jan. 27 for reserving hotel accommodations to attend the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA’s) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) Feb. 21-25 in Washington, D.C. Those attending the GAC can enjoy special conference lodging rates by signing up through CUNA’s Housing Bureau through the extended deadline. Reservations, changes and cancellations can be handled through the CUNA housing bureau, with one exception. The Grand Hyatt Hotel will accept no changes through CUNA housing bureau beyond Jan. 13. After that date changes will have to be executed directly through that hotel. Credit union representatives still needing to reserve accommodation for the GAC should contact the CUNA Housing Bureau website using the resource link below, or call 1-800-974-3084 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET). At this year’s GAC, credit union attendees will hear from such high-ranked federal lawmakers as House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), that committee’s ranking Republican member Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), and senior members of the committee, Reps. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) and Ed Royce (R-Calif.). Also among featured speakers: National Credit Union Administration Chairman Debbie Matz, Financial Accounting Standards Board Chairman Robert Herz, Larry Kudlow, economist and host of CNBC's The Kudlow Report, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, and Richard Phillips, Captain of the Maersk Alabama, which was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009.
