DCUC gets involved in Virtual GAC

WASHINGTON, DC (March 1, 2021)

Following a successful Defense Matters broadcast on Thursday, February 25, DCUC is looking forward to CUNA’s GAC.

The GAC is always an exciting time to be in DC, and with the event going virtual, DCUC is proud to be participating in events throughout the conference.

Kicking off the week, DCUC’s President/CEO Anthony Hernandez will be interviewing LTG H.R. McMaster, USA, Ret., during the GAC’s opening keynote session at 11 AM ET on Tuesday. Topics discussed will include resilience during challenging times, specifically strategic confidence and competence, and how lessons learned in the military translate to credit unions. Make sure to tune in for this fantastic interview!

Additionally, DCUC is sponsoring the National Credit Union Foundation Celebration Tuesday evening and the Cooperative Trust’s Thunderpunch, a very popular evening for the GAC Crashers. These two events celebrate credit unions’ past, present, and future and promise to be a great time.

“DCUC grew out of a CUNA sub-council, and we are always happy to return to our advocacy roots each year,” said Hernandez. “Every credit union has at least one military member. The work we do together as an industry is essential.”
