Washington
Two added to power-packed GAC lineup (02/21/2011)
WASHINGTON (2/22/11)--Two new names have been added to the power-packed Credit Union National Association (CUNA) 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) lineup--House credit union champion Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo) and Treasury Domestic Finance Undersecretary Jeffrey Goldstein. Perlmutter is a member of the House Financial Services Committee and has previously spoken at the GAC. He has publicly backed lifting the cap on credit union member business lending, and was one of several legislators that maintained their seat for the 112th Congress with the help of credit union-backed mailing campaigns. Treasury Domestic Finance Undersecretary Jeffrey Goldstein has also been added to the GAC lineup. Goldstein’s department addresses several vital credit union issues. House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), finance committee member Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.) and Senate Banking Committee member Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) are also among the long list of legislative luminaries on the GAC lineup. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), and Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) are also set to speak at the GAC. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau architect Elizabeth Warren and co-authors of The New York Times No. 1 best-seller "Game Change" Mark Halperin and John Heilemann are also scheduled to address GAC attendees. The GAC will also feature keynote speeches from actor and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals co-founder John Schneider and "Miracle on the Hudson" pilot Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III. The GAC will take place in Washington, D.C. from Feb. 28 until March 3. To register for the 2011 GAC, use the resource link.
