CUNA’s 2011 Government Affairs Conference - LSCU hotel block

CUNA’s 2011 Government Affairs Conference in Washington is approaching and we hope you will join us for this premier event, and the opportunity to make the credit union voice heard on Capitol Hill. CUNA will soon be announcing the opening of general housing reservations for credit unions. However, the LSCU has secured a block of rooms at the Grand Hyatt Washington for Alabama and Florida credit unions. The Hyatt is only about a block away from the Washington Convention Center which is the conference location, so please make your reservations through this block, and avoid the mad scramble for rooms later.

Alabama and Florida credit unions can make reservations within the LSCU block now. Visit the LSCU CUNA GAC Resource area to find the hotel link and password. This is a password protected area so you will need to login to access the information. If you do not have a password, click the "signup" button on the login page.

CUNA’s schedule has been revised for 2011 to allow additional opportunities for visits with members of Congress. Make travel arrangements to return home no earlier than Thursday afternoon.

The LSCU will host a “Welcome Reception” on Sunday evening (Feb. 27) along with “Hospitality” events planned for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday where the latest political, legislative, and Hill visit information will be disseminated.

CUNA’s GAC begins on Sunday with the grand opening of the exhibit hall and a concert featuring a surprise special guest. Monday’s schedule features the opening general session and legislative update. The day will conclude with the Herb Wegner dinner benefiting the National Credit Union Foundation.

Tuesday's schedule features presentations by key political and legislative leaders, a reception with the NCUA Board and Regional Directors, and ends with the ever popular Late Night at the GAC. Wednesday features more key political and legislative leaders as well as the start of Hill visits which will continue on into Thursday.
