“CUNA GAC represents what the movement is all about: advocacy, “said Todd Spiczenski, chief products and services officer at CUNA. “This is our opportunity to unite in telling the credit union difference story and inspire engagement in advocacy year-round.”

CUNA GAC offers an action-packed schedule, including keynote and breakout sessions from renowned speakers, an expansive exhibit hall and numerous networking opportunities.

At the heart of CUNA GAC are Hill visits, which are organized by your League. Conference attendees go to Capitol Hill to speak to their legislators, sharing how credit unions make everyday life better for 115 million American members and having important conversations to improve the credit union regulatory environment.

“The advocacy impact of bringing together thousands of credit union leaders from across the country cannot be understated,” said Hawaii Credit Union League President Dennis Tanimoto. “When credit union people meet face-to-face with Hawaii’s congressional delegation, our priorities are clear, our voices are heard and their credit union constituents benefit.”

Credit union professionals under the age of 35 will again have the opportunity to attend CUNA GAC on scholarship facilitated by The Cooperative Trust.

Marriott Marquis Hotel for our league hotel block and the excitement and enthusiasm from the group is spreading to others and more credit union officials want to engage in this conference. With the added interest and limited room allocations at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, means some will have the opportunity to stay at another hotel and enjoy the DC neighborhood from a different location, Marriott Metro Center.
