CUNA GAC: Mark Your Calendar for February 26 - March 2, 2017

Mark your calendar - Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2017 Governmental Affairs Conference will be held February 26 - March 2 in Washington, D.C. CUNA GAC unites thousands of credit union advocates to fight for fairer legislation, regulation and policies for credit unions.

“CUNA GAC is a great opportunity for credit unions to fully embrace their cooperative spirit and join forces on an industry-wide level to advocate for political change,” said Brad Douglas, president/CEO of Heartland Credit Union Association (HCUA). “We strongly encourage Kansas and Missouri credit unions to be a part of this critically important event and remind lawmakers of the invaluable service our movement provides.”

“CUNA GAC unites credit unions around our powerful cause,” said Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO. “It’s a great conference and networking event. It’s our time to bring our message to Washington, D.C. Credit unions are different, and we make a difference for our more than 100 million members and their communities.”

HCUA's Hike the Hill event, along with other state credit union leagues, are at the heart of CUNA GAC. Credit union representatives from all 50 states visit Capitol Hill to meet with their representatives, start conversations on pivotal legislative and regulatory issues, and remind them of the benefit credit unions have on their constituents’ lives.

CUNA GAC also features:

  • Keynote sessions from business, media and politics
  • Breakout sessions on important regulatory and advocacy topics
  • Touring the largest exhibit hall of any credit union event
  • Networking with fellow industry leaders

For the eighth year, CUNA welcomes young professionals to engage at CUNA GAC. Professionals under the age of 35 will have the opportunity to attend through a scholarship facilitated by The Cooperative Trust
