We are very excited to announce that thanks to CUNA Mutual Group, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is giving away 13 scholarships to the Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) on the Small Credit Union Community! This opportunity is open to all small credit unions under $120M in assets.

The contest runs through Friday, February 12, 2021.  

To receive entry into the contest drawing, participating credit unions must be signed up for one of several “Digests” at the Small Credit Union Community and respond to at least one of five “GAC Contest Questions.”

Five “Early” Winners were announced on January 21, but the remaining eight winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 16. No purchase is necessary to win. One scholarship per credit union. You can also enter by postcard!

Small credit unions can also learn how to qualify for these drawings via the contest page on the Small Credit Union Community. (Accessible only to small credit unions.)
