February – June 2014
CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference
One Cause. One Voice.
Plan to attend the nation’s capital for the 2014 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) to Unite for Good.
Rally for the powerful credit union cause and connect with leaders from across the United States.
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 state Hike the Hill visits
Please wait for word from Kelly Fuhlbrigge for registration information!
This past year, CUNA and the leagues launched a shared strategic vision for credit unions nationwide: Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
To make our vision a reality, we must come together to remove barriers – like the threat to the credit union tax status - create awareness and foster service excellence. We all need to Unite for Good.
We have an opportunity to accomplish a lot for the movement this year, and need your involvement to make it happen. Come to Washington, D.C. to tell our shared story and protect the credit union difference.
The Financial Reality Fair to be held at Connecticut College in New London will attract a large number of high schools from surrounding towns with participating students numbering in the hundreds!
Many volunteers are needed to insure the success of this important educational activity.
Please consider volunteering for this exciting event!
Our first compliance networking meeting was a great success. Our open forum provided opportunity to express concerns, exchange ideas and understand best practices our credit unions have put in place as it pertains to the new mortgage regulations that came into effect January 2014. Thank you to all who attended and contributed. Our lively group is excited to meet again on May 20, 2014 at 9:00 am at the league. The topic of choice is Fair Lending. This topic was chosen based on the next league in house training session “Fair Lending and How to Conduct a Fair Lending Risk Assessment” scheduled for May 14, 2014 at “IL Monticello”, facilitated by M & M Consulting. We felt this would be a good time to discuss the takeaways from the May 14th training session. If you were not able to join us today, we hope you will consider our future meetings.
