CUNAs Cheney meets with Republican leadership at RNC events
TAMPA, Fla. (8/31/12)--Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Bill Cheney Wednesday night was able to engage in spontaneous meetings with top Republican leadership, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, as he attended Republican National Convention (RNC) events and addresses at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the RNC venue here.

Cheney and GOP leaders discussed the economy, election issues and more, and Cheney shared the credit union perspective with Senate and House Republicans.

Cheney and other top CUNA and league officials continued the credit union presence at the RNC last night as Mitt Romney accepted his party's nomination to be its presidential candidate.

CUNA, the state credit union leagues, and credit unions have been active all week in RNC events.

Next week in Charlotte, N.C., the credit union representatives will blanket the Democratic National Convention to establish a presence there, also.
