New House member Stivers added to GAC lineup
WASHINGTON (1/12/11)--Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH) will join fellow House members Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), Barney Frank (D-Mass.), and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as a speaker at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). Stivers has previously served in the Ohio state senate, and became a first time member of the U.S. Congress when he was sworn in last week. Stivers, who was backed by CUNA, the Ohio Credit Union League, and individual Ohio-based credit unions during his campaign, defeated then-incumbent Mary Jo Kilroy (D) last November. Stivers has extensive finance industry experience, and has, in recent years, told Ohio credit union representatives that he would support legislation that gives credit unions more capacity to serve members. Stivers has also noted the important economic role that credit unions play in the communities they serve. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau architect Elizabeth Warren and co-authors of The New York Times No. 1 best-seller "Game Change" Mark Halperin and John Heilemann are also scheduled to speak during the GAC. The GAC will also feature keynote speeches from actor and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals co-founder John Schneider and "Miracle on the Hudson" pilot Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III. The GAC will open on Sunday Feb. 27 with a performance by classic rockers Three Dog Night. Additional speakers from Capitol Hill and the regulatory agencies will be announced in coming weeks.
