CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference

March 8, 2015 @ 8:00 am - March 12, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

The Credit Union National Association’s annual Governmental Affair Conference is coming up this March at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. An influential draw for accomplished and influential economic thinkers, the conference provokes an onslaught of conversation geared toward working with the government in the spirit of America’s fiscal well-being. The association at the core of this widespread and highly regarded event — CUNA — is the ideal mediator of the great minds involved and topics explored.

CUNA is the largest trade association in the country. According to its website, “CUNA serves America’s nearly 7,000 credit unions, which are owned by more than 100 million consumer members.” The organization’s service stretches across a broad spectrum of interests, some of which include governmental and political efforts, public relations representation, educational and training programs, and more.

The conference will reflect CUNA’s status in the world of American credit unions by featuring a few well-known and highly regarded keynote speakers. Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief- of the prolific Huffington Post Media Group, will share wisdom from her vast experience in political and social communications. Former White House Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer will also share some thoughts from his time managing media and crisis communication for the Bush presidency.

In addition to these amazing speakers, the conference will be broken up into a series of several different events, meetings and open exhibit halls. The event’s top talks will be the breakout discussions taking place throughout the conference. Some of these conversation topics include Stopping Merchant Data Breaches and the Future of Payments Security and The Politics & Policies of Tax Reform and its Implications to Credit Unions.

To dive into this vast world of intellectual thought and relevant economic discussion, head to DC soon. If you’re in search of a hotel near the Washington E. Convention Center, check out our luxury boutique hotel, the Graham Georgetown.

Temporary Hotel Closure Due to COVID-19

As a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the hospitality industry is experiencing an impact to business that will cause The Graham Georgetown to temporarily suspend hotel operations as of March 27, 2020. This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests. Any guests with questions regarding upcoming reservations are encouraged to contact Hilton Reservations and Customer Care for assistance. We plan to fully restore operations at our hotel by September 15, 2020, and look forward to welcoming our guests and Team Members back as soon as possible. We can’t wait to resume our place in the Georgetown community!
