It was an exciting Monday at #CUNAGAC!

Well they say that records are made to be broken and CUNA’s 2020 Governmental Affairs Conference kicked off on Monday morning by doing just that. Over 5,500 credit union advocates were on hand to set a new record attendance at #CUNAGAC!

CUNA President Jim Nussle (along with Karen Nussle) opened up the morning’s General Session by making everyone aware that even though the economy is in a good place, your members aren’t necessary feeling the same way.

The good news is that credit unions are there to help and are taking the time to talk to their members about their financial well-being. And that’s the CU Difference.

Nussle challenged credit unions to tell the powerful stories of how they’re making a difference in members’ lives and to also think about 3 things while they’re at GAC:

The National Credit Union Foundation’s Gigi Hyland then asked credit unions to take this GAC energy back home.

Author Marcus Buckingham then had some inspirational words on success when it comes to finding and leveraging talent

In the afternoon General Meeting, outgoing Chairman Brett Martinez had great things to say about his time on the CUNA board and urged credit unions to keep advancing the CU movement.

CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan had some inspiring words for credit unions before they “Hike the Hill” on Wednesday.

Today will be another exciting day at GAC. In the morning, after some time with NCUA’s Rodney Hood and CFPB’s Kathy Kraninger, newly elected CUNA Board Chair Troy Stang will give his first remarks to the GAC crowd. Afterwards, former UN Ambassador and Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley will deliver the morning keynote address. The afternoon session will feature David Plouffe, former Campaign Manager and White House Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama.
