CUNA GAC protocols shift as D.C. lifts vaccine verification requirement

WASHINGTON, DC (February 15, 2022) — Attendees at the 2022 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) no longer need to verify their vaccine status to attend the credit movement’s signature event, held February 27-March 3, after Washington, D.C., officials lifted the vaccine verification requirement to enter indoor venues. Additionally, the indoor mask requirement will expire on Monday, February 28.

“We’re pleased that COVID-19 numbers are moving in the right direction in Washington, D.C.,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “This does not change our commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable event for all attendees, and we will continue to work with the staff at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to adhere to the latest safety recommendations.”

While the city-wide vaccine verification requirement has been lifted, businesses may choose to continue to ask customers for vaccination verification or to adhere to mask guidelines. The Walter E. Washington Convention Center will no longer require proof of vaccination; however, CUNA is awaiting further guidance on their mask guidelines after the city-wide requirement expires on February 28.
