Last Minute GAC Attendees Welcome!
by CUAD Communications

Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) invite credit unions from all around the Dakotas to join credit union leaders from around the country at our industry’s largest gathering of the year!


More than 5,000 credit union leaders will gather for the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C. March 10-14. At the heart of CUNA GAC are Hill visits, which are organized by CUAD. Join your peers as the group travels to Capitol Hill to advocate for the needs of Dakota members.


In addition to focused advocacy efforts, CUNA GAC offers world class keynote speakers. Previously in the Memo, we mentioned two of the big names in the lineup this year: John Kerry and Malcolm Gladwell. Now, CUNA has announced the final keynote speaker: Dana Perino! Ms. Perino is a political commentator for Fox News. She previously served as the first Republican woman in the role of White House Press Secretary during the George W. Bush Administration, and was appointed by President Obama to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. Today, she hosts two of Fox News’ most successful programs and is the author of two books on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Outside of her professional world, Perino started Minute Mentoring and serves on the board of Companions for Heroes, which matches rescue animals with first-responders and veterans managing post-traumatic stress.


This is an amazing opportunity to see Washington DC with your peers, making a difference for credit unions as we advocate on their behalf. If you have any questions about the CUAD agenda or schedule during the GAC, please contact Jay Kruse or Jeff Olson.
