Mr. Blair will bring his worldly perspective to CUNA’s GAC attendees at a key time not only for the U.S. economy, but also at a time when we Unite for Good for the future of the U.S. credit union system.
Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and a vocal supporter of the credit union tax exemption.
Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.), the chairman of the House financial institutions subcommittee.
Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the House Minority Whip (the second-highest ranking Democrat in the House).
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), a member of the House Financial Services Committee and co-sponsor of crucial credit union-backed legislation to modify the definition of credit union net worth to include supplemental forms of capital for credit unions and allow the regulator to develop risk based capital standards for the purposes of prompt corrective action (PCA).
Who should attend the CUNA GAC? Credit union CEOs/presidents, board members, COOs, CFOs, other credit union executives, governmental affairs specialists, public relations officers, CUNA Council members, association officials, supervisory committee members, young leaders and others with an interest in the future of credit unions.
Why should you attend? Legislative challenges and regulatory burdens continue to be a focus, and an election year brings the opportunity for credit unions to get behind our powerful cause. Together, we can build our future and provide the vision of credit union success for new generations. The strength of the credit union system is showcased at the GAC through more than 4,000 attendees who participate in the GAC's Capitol Hill visits. And, the caliber of speakers from the Washington political establishment who address credit union leaders from the GAC stage is unrivaled.
It's time to grow the participation, champion the credit union cause and effect positive change. By joining and working together, we can make a difference that matters—to every credit union member and the entire credit union movement.
