Vision - 2013 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference Theme

This week’s Credit Union National Association sponsored Governmental Affairs Conference brought more than 4,200 credit union advocates to Capital Hill.  CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney presented a bold new, overarching strategic vision for the credit union movement: A vision in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner."  Cheney told a packed GAC audience that he is presenting a broad vision for the movement now because the time for credit unions has never been better.  "People want to do business with people who have their best interests at heart.” 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), also addressed the audience and directed the spotlight to shine brightly on the credit union difference.  Across her state of Massachusetts--and all around the country--member-owned credit unions are looking out for people, she said. "That's what credit unions do-they work for their members."   Pictured below is Senator Warren greeting Massachusetts Credit Union League Inc. President/CEO: Daniel Egan.
