Washington
NEW: House Speaker John Boehner to address CUNA's 2013 GAC
WASHINGTON (1/16/13, UPDATED 11:35 a.m. ET)--Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) will address the Credit Union National Association's 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington on Feb. 26.

"We are very honored to again have Speaker Boehner join us at the GAC," said CUNA President and CEO Bill Cheney.  "We know he has a full agenda in the House with debt ceiling, sequestration and government funding measures all coming to the fore near the time of our conference.



"The Speaker's acceptance of our invitation is indicative of his appreciation for all credit unions do to ably serve their members in Ohio and nationwide."

Speaker Boehner first addressed CUNA's GAC in 2011.  He is one of two sitting Speakers of the House to address the credit union movement's premier national conference.  Then-Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke at the GAC in February 1998 during CUNA, league and credit unions' successful fight to enact H.R. 1151, the Credit Union Membership Access Act.

Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), champion of credit union member business lending legislation in the Senate, also has been added to the growing roster of Washington power players who will address the GAC this year.  Udall will speak Wednesday, Feb. 27.

 
 
CUNA's 2013 GAC takes place Feb. 24-28 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.  Other confirmed speakers include newly named House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and House Financial Services Committee senior members Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) and Ed Royce (R-Calif.).

More congressional and regulatory speakers will be announced in coming weeks.
