Mission, vision, advocacy spotlighted Monday, GAC continues Tuesday

Monday at the 2024 Governmental Affairs Conference featured a wide variety of main stage speeches, keynotes, and breakout sessions.

America’s Credit Unions Transition Board Chair Brian Schools and Vice Chair Lisa Ginter spotlighted the organization’s mission and vision, and shared the role the board will take in executing them.

America’s Credit Unions President/CEO Jim Nussle told attendees that the strong, unified national trade association will fight for and listen to its members.

America’s Credit Unions Chief Advocacy Officer Carrie Hunt said advocacy is “part science, part art,” explained how the principles to protect, empower, and advance credit unions will guide building a successful advocacy strategy.

Hunt also conducted a fireside chat with NCUA Chairman Todd Harper to discuss the credit union system and the agency’s approach to safety and soundness.

Keynoter Gary Sinise told his story of making connections and service, while Dr. Jennifer Golbeck shared the numerous opportunities—and potential pitfalls—that come with using AI.

Finally, breakout sessions allowed attendees to get the details on everything from the economy to all sides of credit union interchange advocacy.
