CUNA GAC features prominent speakers, lawmaker meetings

Nikki R. Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (2017-2019), will be a keynote speaker at the 2020 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), Feb. 23-27 in Washington, D.C. More than 5,000 credit union advocates will converge for the premier credit union advocacy event of the year. This is a prime opportunity for credit union professionals to meet with lawmakers face-to-face and share our members’ stories while hearing keynote sessions from leaders in business, media and politics

Haley is the former United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations. She served as a member of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet and as a member of the National Security Council from 2017-2019. At the United Nations (UN), Haley was widely respected as a champion of human rights. She hosted the first-ever session devoted solely to promoting human rights and bravely challenged oppressive regimes around the world. Haley also oversaw critical reforms that helped make the UN more efficient, transparent and accountable.

Participants will hear from influential business and political thought leaders while exploring key advocacy topics that impact credit unions and their members. The conference will center around key advocacy priorities for credit unions including: preserving the tax status, combating bank attacks, protecting data privacy and security, securing regulatory relief and bolstering main street in good times and bad.

CUNA GAC also features:

  • Breakout sessions on important financial regulatory and advocacy topics
  • The largest exhibit hall of any credit union event
  • Networking opportunities with fellow industry leaders

Hill Hikes, coordinated together with the state credit union leagues, are at the heart of CUNA GAC. Credit union representatives from all 50 states visit Capitol Hill to meet with their representatives, start conversations on pivotal legislative and regulatory issues, and remind them of the benefit credit unions have on their constituents’ lives.
