WASHINGTON (2/26/13)--While News Now and other media and social media channels at the Credit Union National Association are covering CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., this week, several leagues are generating some GAC buzz on their own, by providing daily videos and other coverage about the activities for the folks back home.
The Michigan Credit Union League's online video portal, CUBE TV, is providing "Live From the GAC" updates each day about the activities, including interviews with league personnel and credit unions. Roughly 125 credit union leaders are attending from Michigan, which the league says is one of the largest delegations from the state in recent years.
The League of Southeastern Credit Unions is podcasting a daily video "LSCU from the CUNA GAC" on its eSignal Weekly for credit unions in Alabama and Florida. Each day it posts a video chronicling the day's events. LSCU's first video set the stage for the next four days, with two credit union officials talking about what they hope to accomplish this week. More than 130 credit union officials from Alabama and Florida are attending the GAC.
Several leagues are covering the events for their daily online or e-mail newsletters. The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas brought highlights and photos to its publication, the Memo from Monday's general session and from the CUNA Strategic Services Board meeting. About 50 CUAD members are participating in the GAC this year--28 from North Dakota and 22 from South Dakota.
The North Carolina Credit Union League's online newsletter The Daily Conversation recaps the Twitter links shared by the league, North Carolina's credit unions and other sources. More than 80 advocates from 20 North Carolina credit unions are attending.
Also covering the events: the Texas Credit Union League's LoneStar Leaguer, the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association's Life is a Highway, the New Jersey Credit Union League's The Daily Exchange and more.
