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

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.
