Mica Attend GAC in year of major changes
WASHINGTON (11/13/08)--2009 will be a year of major changes, and credit unions should plan to attend the Credit Union National Association's 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) to stay abreast of those changes, says CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica in a special video invitation.
In the video, Mica outlines why it's important to attend the GAC, which will be held Feb. 22-26, 2009, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. (Push the play button to view the video.) He notes changes in economic policies, tax policies, regulations, Congress, the White House, the Treasury and NCUA as all having a possible impact on credit unions and their members. In addition credit unions will celebrate their 100th anniversary, and CUNA and the Federal Credit Union Act will turn 75. The GAC headliners include:
* Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine, providing economic commentary on America's Economic Outlook and Opportunities; * Pundits Paul Begala, CNN political analyst, and Tucker Carlson, MSNBC senior correspondent, facing off over current developments in national news, politics and world issues; * "Lt. Dan Band," formed by Chicago composer Kimo Williams and Gary Sinese, star of "CSI New York," the hit CBS TV show. The band is named after Sinese's character in the 1994 blockbuster film, "Forrest Gump." The concert kicks off the GAC on Feb. 22 and is presented by the CUNA Councils.
