The Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) is returning to Washington, DC, February 27 – March 3. While this year’s event is in-person, there are ways to participate virtually. If you are unable to travel to Washington, DC but would like to learn more about attending virtually, please email Robert Caverly or Kelley Souza at the League.
Despite the return of in-person programming at the GAC, the League’s interaction with Maine’s congressional delegation will be virtual. Because the capitol building remains largely closed due to security concerns and the pandemic, the League is unable host our traditional congressional breakfast. Attendees, however, need not to worry, as the League is bringing back our “Mornings In Maine” program which will feature all four of our delegation members.
Mornings In Maine will take place between 7:45 – 9:00 on both March 1 and 2. This event is open to all League members, not just GAC attendees. Besides the congressional delegation, Mornings In Maine also will feature two guest speakers. On Tuesday, former Congressman David Emery will talk about redistricting efforts in Maine following the 2020 Census. Then on Wednesday, Steve Mistler, Maine Public Broadcasting Network’s Chief Political Correspondent, will share his insights about the headlines we can expect to see in 2022.
“While we are disappointed that not all of our normal GAC traditions are back in full this year, I think this year’s programming will be valuable to our credit union advocates,” said Robert Caverly, League Vice President of Governmental Affairs. “Our knowledgeable guests will deliver something unique each morning and hearing from our delegation always is a special opportunity. I hope even those who are unable to travel to Washington will strongly consider joining us for Mornings In Maine.”
