Head to Lansing to Represent Michigan CU Members
Michigan's delegation has returned from the CUNA Government Affairs Conference to represent credit unions in Washington DC, and now it is time to register for the MCUL Government Affairs Conference to represent credit union members in Lansing.
The event takes place Wednesday and Thursday, April 20 & 21 at the Radisson Hotel and Anderson House Office building and kicks-off with David Adams, CEO of MCUL & Affiliates, sharing recent league initiatives and discussing the importance of this year’s GAC.
The first day's packed-agenda also includes "MCUL’s Legislative Issues Update," "House Financial Services Committee Forecast," "Legislator and Staffer of the Year Awards," "PAC Fundraising Awards and Lunch," "Regulatory Update," "Inside Track for 2016 and Beyond," "Political Advocacy Panel," "2016 State and Federal Election Forecast," "Senate Banking Committee Forecast" and a "Legislative Reception with Senate Members."
The second day features a "Legislative Breakfast with House Members", "Federal Advocacy Priorities: Credit Unions on Capitol Hill" and a "Regulator Roundtable", with the event wrapping-up prior to noon.
Other events include several high-profile speakers, legislative leaders and regulatory agency representatives. House Financial Services Committee Chairman and our 2015 Lawmaker of the Year Anthony Forlini, R-Harrison Township, will give attendees a forecast of what is to come in the second half of the year in the industry’s leading legislative committees.
The NCUA and DIFS will participate in a regulatory roundtable to discuss the hot button issues within the agencies.
