Issa joins CUNA GAC speaker slate
WASHINGTON (1/23/14)--More congressional leaders and credit union supporters are joining the speaker list for the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C.--including Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) who heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
 
Issa, now in his seventh term, is widely known as an advocate of more efficient government and a proponent of less regulatory burden in general--including for credit unions.
 
Also recently signing on to speak at the nation's biggest gathering of credit union leaders from Feb. 23 to 27 are:
  • Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), a strong supporter of increased credit union business lending authority;
  • Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), a longtime credit union supporter, and sponsor of credit union business lending legislation and measures to relieve the credit union regulatory burden; and
  • Rep. Denny Heck (D-Wash.), a former credit union official and current member of the House Financial Services Committee.
The CUNA GAC is being held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center; it annually draws up to 4,000 credit union leaders and supporters. Use the resource link for more details and to register.
