House Financial Services Bachus joins GAC lineup
WASHINGTON (1/16/09)—The ranking Republican member of the House
Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), ranking minority member of the House Financial Services Committee, said at the CUNA’s 2008 GAC, ““I respect what credit unions do. There are so many people you serve that would not be served otherwise.” (Photo provided by CUNA)
Financial Services Committee, Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama, is now scheduled to address the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) on Wednesday, Feb. 25. He joins a growing list of key speakers, including his panel’s chairman, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), who heads the panel's subcommittee on financial institutions and consumer credit, and Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). Additional Hill speakers will be announced in coming weeks. More highlights already slated for the program include economic commentary from Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine, and a political face-off between pundits Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson. Forbes will offer economic outlook and commentary at a time when the nation continues to struggle through one of the worst financial crises in its history. He attained national visibility in the political arena both 1996 and 2000 when he campaigned for the Republican nomination for President. Carlson and Begala will face off over current developments in national news, politics, and world issues. Carlson is a senior correspondent for MSNBC, and Begala is a CNN political analyst and former top aide to President Bill Clinton. Also, Bob Woodruff of ABC News and his wife, Lee, will provide a poignant start to CUNA's 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference as they recall the shattering moment when Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb when assigned to report U.S. and Iraqi security forces near Taji. The Woodruffs will highlight the GAC's opening general session on Monday, Feb. 23. And wrapping things up will be Al Roker, NBC’s beloved weatherman and host of its Today Show. Roker will bring his charisma and sense of humor to the podium during a talk entitled, "Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella."
