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. is ending its requirement for people to show proof of vaccination effective Tuesday, February 15, and lifting the mask requirement in businesses on March 1. This impacts the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, taking place February 27 – March 3.

GAC virtual option now open for registration
For credit union leaders who aren’t able to attend the Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in person – there is a virtual option. CUNA GAC On-Air offers a sampling of GAC presentations, including CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle’s speech, the ED (Filene) talk with Mick Ebeling, and an economic update with CUNA Chief Economist Mike Schenk and more. Visit cuna.org/gac to register for both the in-person and virtual option.  If you’ve already registered for the in-person GAC and want to transfer to the virtual option, contact [email protected] for assistance.
