With CUNA GAC approaching, CUs encouraged to update PAC agreements


Registration is now open for the 2020 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, scheduled for Feb. 23-27, in Washington, D.C.

With the event fast-approaching, credit union advocates are encouraged to ensure their permission agreements for CULAC, the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee, are up-to-date. The agreement authorizes the New York Credit Union Association or CUNA to solicit the credit union’s executive or administrative personnel for contributions to CULAC. The credit union may only grant such prior approval to one federal credit union political action committee at a time.

To find the form to sign the permission agreement electronically, visit the CULAC website. For assistance with updating the permission agreements, contact the Association’s Member Relations Department at (800) 342-9835, ext. 8546, or member.relations@nycua.org.

The CUNA GAC is considered the premier event for political impact in the credit union industry, drawing thousands of credit union advocates from across the country each year. In addition to the keynote and educational sessions, the event also includes face-to-face meetings with some of the most influential policymakers in the country.

Notably, the conference will include:

  • networking with nationwide credit union leaders;
  • keynote sessions from thought leaders in politics, business and media;
  • breakout sessions that explore regulatory compliance and advocacy issues;
  • advocacy meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill; and
  • the financial industry’s largest exhibit hall.

Additional information, including agenda details and speakers, will be provided in the weeks ahead.
