CUNA GAC attendees were treated to two "experts" during the general sessions of the CUNA GAC. Former NBC News Anchor Tom Brokaw and financial expert Jean Chatzky talked about the world we live in today and where credit unions fit in. The day began with CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney laying out a long-term vision for the credit union movement.
Cheney asked credit unions to
Unite for Good. He said one collective message from credit unions on what they do to help their members and consumers can go a long way in shaping the media and lawmakers. He said one story from credit unions is great, but when 7,000 have the same message it is very powerful. More information about Unite for Good will be rolled out over the next few months.
Brokaw said he thought the world needed to return to service and that credit unions could help lead the way. He said the credit union model is working and that the key is taking that model and expanding it to a broader perspective. Chatzky said the world needs more financial education. She said credit unions are doing a great job educating consumers. She got a big hand when she said she was a big fan of credit unions.
