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.

Collaboration Conversation – IT Package Solutions @ League Education Center
Mar 4 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

In 2013 the League surveyed credit unions on areas of collaborative interest.  The primary area of interest involved IT solutions.  We reached out to our Strategic Partner Cooperative Systems and asked them if they would be interested in creating a pricing schedule based on multi-credit union collaboration.  This meeting is the beginning of that collaboration discussion.  Any credit union that is interested in participating in an IT package collaboration is invited to attend this meeting, which will provide an overview of the concept and look at what the next steps in the process may be.

One Session!

March 4th, League Education Center, Meriden

Compliance Training Webinar: Ability to Repay & Qualified Mortgage @ League Education Center
Mar 5 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

We are pleased to announce the 2014 Compliance Training Workshops and Webinar series.  Hosted by the Credit Union League of CT and facilitated by the experts at M&M Consulting, LLC, these training workshops and webinars will provide comprehensive understanding of upcoming regulatory changes and assist in providing exciting solutions to the regulatory difficulties Connecticut credit unions are faced with.

This year, in an effort to maximize the benefits of this invaluable guidance, the league will provide the opportunity to attend the webinar portion of the series from the convenience of your credit union.  As always, the league is happy to provide the webinars at our office in Meriden at no cost to our affiliated credit unions.  If however, you are interested in attending from your credit union, the registration fee is $89.00 per webinar/per incoming telephone line.  You may have as many employees who wish to take advantage of any particular webinar attend from your credit union provided they are on the same telephone line for this small cost.  Registration to attend either option is required.

M&M Consulting, LLC experts will also serve as facilitators in the Workshop portion of this series.  These experts are secure in their knowledge, and confident of their ability to convey pertinent compliance information.  Affiliated credit unions will leave our Workshop training sessions with an understanding of how to meet  the challenges they face in today’s regulatory environment.  The workshops are available to our affiliated credit unions at no additional cost.  Dates will be announced and registration is required.


The first webinar in the series focuses on the confusion around the new mortgage regulations.  It is scheduled for Wednesday, March 5th 9:00 am – 11:00 am and will provide comprehensive understanding on how these rules affect the mortgage products and services you provide your members, as well as how to comply with the regulations.  This is a great opportunity to obtain additional guidance now that the rules have taken effect and the need for implementation grows with more intensity.



Idea Lab – Retirement Fairs @ League Education Center
Mar 6 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
Idea Lab - Retirement Fairs  @ League Education Center | Meriden | Connecticut | United States

Connecticut credit unions expressed interest in learning more about a new product developed through NCUF – Retirement Fairs.  This program, similar to a Financial Reality Fair, is a hands-on experiential program for adults thinking about retirement and interested in practicing living on retirement income. Mark Lynch, developer of the program, will provide an overview of the Fair, then attendees will actually participate in the Fair exercise.  After the Fair there will be a debrief with an opportunity to ask questions.  The program has been developed in a format that credit unions will be able to use with minimal volunteers and bring to membership events to share with their members.  Anyone interested in the program for staff, volunteers and/or membership should attend the program to obtain more information.
