WASHINGTON (9/13/12)--Registration for the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) is now open, as CUNA today officially launched the online homepage for the conference, gac.cuna.org.
CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said the 2013 GAC "is all about making an impact, advancing our legislative agenda and removing regulatory barriers so that credit unions can be our members' best financial partners."
The theme of the 2013 GAC, Powerful Cause, Positive Effect, reflects the credit union commitment to the 95 million working Americans who rely on credit unions every day, he added. CUNA's GAC is the credit union movement's premier political event and its largest national conference, each year providing more than 4,000 credit union executives and board members an opportunity to hear influential leaders from Congress, presidential administrations and federal regulatory agencies.
GAC attendees will also have the chance to meet directly with their members of Congress here in Washington. "It is critical that we bring the power of our grassroots cause to the Hill and ensure a stronger future for credit unions," Cheney said.
Recognized as the key conference to attend for political impact, credit union networking and industry updates, the GAC also offers a wide array of educational breakout sessions, the industry's largest exhibitor showcase, guest/family programs to tour Washington's sights, and special entertainment including an opening concert and the closing Gala Reception and Dance.
Keynote and other speakers and session topics will be announced in the weeks to come. For more information, follow the @CUNAverse twitter hashtag #CUNAGAC.
