One Cause. One Voice.
Join us in the nation's capital for the 2014 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) to Unite for Good.
Rally for the powerful credit union cause and connect with leaders from across the United States.
CUNA GAC is the biggest week of the year for credit unions. More than 4,000 credit union people come together to:
- Hear from influential legislators, policymakers and credit union experts on the political landscape and its effect on credit unions
- Identify new strategies for building and maintaining America's awareness and trust
- Network with credit union leaders
- Attend breakout sessions on the hottest issues in the movement
- Tour the largest vendor showcase in the financial services industry
- Tell Congress our story at state Hike the Hill visits
- Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and a vocal supporter of the credit union tax exemption.
- House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the second highest ranking Democrat in the House.
- Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee on financial institutions and consumer credit.
- Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), a member of the House Financial Services Committee and co-sponsor of the crucial credit union backed legislation to modify the definition of credit union net worth to include supplemental forms of capital for credit unions and allow federal regulators to develop risk-based capital standards for the purposes of prompt corrective action - or PCA.
Unite for Good
This past year, CUNA and the leagues launched a shared strategic vision for credit unions nationwide: Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
To make our vision a reality, we must come together to remove barriers - like the threat to the credit union tax status - create awareness and foster service excellence. We all need to Unite for Good.
We have an opportunity to accomplish a lot for the movement this year, and need your involvement to make it happen. Come to Washington, D.C. to tell our shared story and protect the credit union difference.
