Another fantastic Tuesday at #CUNAGAC!

Tuesday morning at #CUNAGAC.

It may have been a cold, rainy, overcast day in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, but that didn’t keep the credit union spirit down at #CUNAGAC.

The morning began with an appearance by NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood, who encouraged credit unions and the work that they do and promised that the NCUA would do all they can to remove duplicative and outdated guidance.

Next, Ranking Member of the GOP Financial Services Committee, Patrick McHenry praised credit unions and the differences they make in helping American families, while recognizing that the Financial Services Committee should focus on helping Main Street institutions like credit unions.

Troy Stang, new CUNA Board Chairman and President/CEO of the Northwest Credit Union Association made his first remarks to the #CUNAGAC crowd. You can watch his address below.

The morning keynote featured CUNA President Jim Nussle leading a Q&A with former UN Ambassador and Governor of SC, Nikki Haley. Haley passed along some stories from her time in both positions, including some interesting interactions with President Trump. She also let the GAC crowd know exactly what she loves about credit unions.

Colorado Senator Cory Gardner has had to become an expert on marijuana over the last several years and had some interesting thoughts on the importance of the #SAFEBankingAct.

David Plouffe former Campaign Manager and Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama had some interesting thoughts on the upcoming primaries, the election, and the state of the two-party system, but he did have one message for credit unions.

Wednesday morning’s final General Session at GAC will feature a message from CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle about Hill visits, as well as a keynote address from former Obama Advisor Stephanie Cutter and former Communications Director Nicolle Wallace, who served in that position under President George W. Bush.
