CUNA GAC - Washington, D.C.
February 24-28, 2013
As you know, as the largest and most impactful credit union conference, CUNA GAC is the one event that all credit unions should attend.  This year’s event will focus on the challenges and opportunities for credit unions presented by the agenda of the soon-to-be elected 113th Congress.  Join other champions of the credit union movement at the 2013 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC).  Help demonstrate to our newly elected and veteran representatives how our commitment to our members makes credit unions different from other financial institutions.  The GAC is the credit union movement’s premier political event and its largest national conference.  The theme for the 2013 GAC is Powerful Cause. Positive Effect.  Click here for more information, including the full hotel and event registration packet.
