Wait list rooms

If the date you are looking to book is not available at the time of making a reservation, complete the reservation for the nights that are available.

Official Housing Bureau 

CUNA GAC’s official housing is handled exclusively by onPeak. Please be aware that there are companies out there that claim to provide housing services for the CUNA GAC that are not affiliated with CUNA. In the future you may receive a fax, email or phone call that offers you cut-rate housing. The author’s apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of CUNA The offer is not made on CUNA’s behalf.

Federal Tax Exemption Form

For federal credit unions to qualify for tax exemption from state and local taxes assessed to room charges, final payment must be made with a federal credit union-issued check, share draft or credit card. If paying with a share draft, contact the hotel to obtain the requirements.

Payments made by personal check, personal share draft or personal credit card will not qualify for the exemption. Both forms (DC specific and NCUA Tax Exemption Letter) must be presented upon hotel check-in by the attendee.
