Washington
Online Early peek around the GAC site locale
WASHINGTON (11/26/07)—Credit unions preparing to attend the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) 2008 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) can watch an advance video preview of the meeting’s new locale. The 2008 GAC happens March 2-6 at the Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, D.C.

In the 2-1/2 minute online video, CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica provides a glimpse of the Gallery Place and Chinatown neighborhoods near the new site. He points out different area attractions and eateries while walking along historic 7th Street Northwest, which is adjacent to the convention center. The International Spy Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Shakespeare Theater and DC's Chinatown are among the sites Mica highlights on the quick tour. Wrapping up back on the convention center steps, he also reminds credit unions that political action is what the GAC is all about: "Make your presence known here at this facility and at Capitol Hill right down the street." Mark Wolff, CUNA senior vice president of communications, said the video is meant to generate excitement about our new GAC venue and help attendees become more familiar with the surroundings. Last month, CUNA released a video featuring CUNA Board Chairman Allan Kemp McMorris. He invites his credit union peers to join the event, and urges them to travel via any possible mode , "bike, car, train or plane. What matters is that you're here!" McMorris prefers his Harley Davidson motorcycle. "We need you in Washington," says McMorris. A large turnout, he adds, makes a bold statement. "So when you come to the GAC, bring a friend."
