It was a big first day at the virtual #CUNAGAC!

The first keynote on Tuesday saw the Defense Credit Union Council’s Anthony Hernandez interview retired Lieutenant General HR McMaster on military leadership and how some of those lessons can apply to credit unions…

We heard messages from congressional credit union champions such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Tim Scott…

There was a spirited discussion about advocacy and how bipartisanship can get things accomplished in Washington, with Rahm Emanuel and Chris Christie…

The breakout sessions provided great information on everything from post-COVID recovery to real-time payments…

In the evening, “CO-OP Rocks GAC” provided music and conversation with Emmy and Tony winner (and 25 year credit union member) Kristin Chenoweth…

Finally, the night ended with The National Credit Union Foundation Celebration which spotlighted past Herb Wegner Award winners…
