CUNA GAC.  Powerful Cause. Positive Effect. We’ve hit the 100 million mark. Now let’s keep the momentum growing at GAC.

One hundred million credit union memberships is a significant milestone. It’s proof that Americans value the credit union difference. It reinforces that Americans want financial service alternatives that offer real choices and put them first. It’s time to celebrate—and time to leverage the opportunity.

Let’s do both at this year’s CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.

CUNA GAC is the biggest week of the year for credit unions. More than 4,000 credit union people come together to:

  • Hear from influential legislators, policymakers and credit union experts on the political landscape and its effect on credit unions
  • Identify new strategies for building and maintaining America’s awareness and trust
  • Network with credit union leaders
  • Attend breakout sessions on the hottest issues in the movement
  • Tour the largest vendor showcase in the financial services industry
  • Tell Congress our story at Hike the Hill visits

All league housing needs to be entered into the housing system by February 11, 2015.

Assistance

If you need to call in for assistance, please call the general housing number (800.974.3084). You must indicate to the agent you are trying to book a reservation into a league sub block.

Payments

Credit unions entering their own reservation into the housing system will be prompted to put in their credit card information into the system to secure their reservation. A $275 deposit is required for each reservation. Cancellations can be made through January 12, 2015 for a full refund. Starting on January 13th, the deposit is non-refundable for cancellations. The system will only allow a reservation to be booked with a credit card.

Comedians

 Jim McCue
A mixture of witty “A-list material” and his ability to work off-script has earned Jim McCue the title “Boston’s King of Crowd Work!” It’s not only his height of six foot six that makes Jim stand head and shoulders above club comedians of the “stick-to-the-script” variety. Jim blends thought-provoking material and uncanny improv skills with a style that encourages audience participation. No two shows are ever the same!

Jim has been featured on Comedy Central, Comcast Comedy Spotlight, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and “Roughing It” on NESN in his native New England. Jim also founded and currently runs The Boston Comedy Festival. He works in top comedy clubs in Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Dublin, Montreal and Edinburgh.

Since 1999 Jim has also entertained U.S. troops at more than 100 bases around the world. An account of his experiences performing for the troops has recently been published in Embedded Comedian which Jim describes as a “field manual for comedians in a war zone.”

With his unique act, Jim keeps the audience on its toes. Volleying between set material and working the crowd, Jim cracks jokes with amazing timing and whip-like precision. A unique blend that is sure to leave the audience roaring with laughter!
