CU System
GAC in the media
MADISON, Wis. (3/8/11)--The Credit Union National Association's (CUNA's) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) last week in Washington, D.C. attracted some attention not only from prominent media in Washington, but from far flung venues such as Germany and Asia. Comments by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Treasury Department Undersecretary Jeffrey Goldstein, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) head Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) received the lion's share of the coverage. Those joining trade press to report on speakers at the conference included FoxNews.com, MSNBC's "FirstRead," The Hill, Politico, Digital Media, Barrons, Business Journals, the National Mortgage Professional Magazine and Las Vegas Sun as well as stations such as KJCT8.com. Even before the GAC began, an article in The Hill (Feb. 27) talked up the event, as did an earlier blog by CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney in the Hill's Feb. 15 issue. This year social media also played a part. Sen. Udall's comments about increasing small business lending and creating jobs by using credit unions' ability to lend was posted on his Facebook page. And CFPB's website featured a video of Elizabeth Warren speaking at CUNA's GAC. A tweet from her office indicated that National Public Radio was working with her on the video. Also, media reported on CUNA Strategic Services' alliances with Fynanz, a private student loan provider; Harland Clarke and Intersections' pact on identity theft; and Ongoing Operations' new business continuity solutions.
