Next year’s CUNA GAC will be held virtually from March 2-4, 2021, and delivered in real-time via a full-featured, interactive digital platform. This annual conference brings together Leagues, credit unions, thought leaders, and policymakers from across the nation.

The online format will integrate many of the conference’s most popular features including live speakers and breakout sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, and the opportunity to (virtually) advocate for the credit union movement.

“In the past few years, an increasing number of officials from Hawaii have traveled to Washington, DC, to represent their credit union at the GAC,” said Hawaii Credit Union League President Dennis Tanimoto. “This annual conference is the largest gathering of the nation’s credit union movement, and the best opportunity to learn about important legislative and regulatory issues facing credit unions. The 2021 virtual GAC eliminates the need to travel while providing the same learning experience at a much lower cost. We hope even more Hawaii credit union officials take advantage of this outstanding opportunity.”

Some of the country’s most influential business and political thought leaders will be among the presenters at CUNA GAC.

Key advocacy topics will include:

  • Preserving the tax status and fighting bank attacks
  • Regulatory relief
  • COVID pandemic relief efforts/ resources

“The shift to a digital format for the 2021 CUNA GAC gives us an opportunity to bring industry-leading programming, networking, and thought leadership to a whole new, expanded pool of credit union champions,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “I look forward to joining my colleagues across the movement in this new take on advocacy, learning, and networking.”
