HCUA Events at CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC)

Join credit union leaders from Kansas and Missouri (and across the country) in Washington, D.C. to learn, celebrate and share the credit union difference with lawmakers.

Please note:
Washington, D.C. recently communicated mask and vaccine requirements for indoor venues such as the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, hotels, and restaurants. Anyone ages 12+ must be fully vaccinated by February 15, 2022.

CUNA will require conference attendees to follow all local and federal guidelines in place at the time of the conference. In advance of the conference, CUNA will be asking you to verify your vaccine status through an independent provider. CUNA will provide details once the verification protocols have been finalized.

CUNA is planning a virtual, limited-content GAC option. More details (including how to register and how to transfer existing registrations) will be shared soon.
