This year’s CUNA GAC will take place on Feb. 26–March 2 in Washington D.C. Credit union participants from each of Michigan’s 14 congressional districts are needed to make this a successful grassroots lobbying event for the MCUL. Scholarships through the “Michele Myrick ASFM Defense Scholarship Fund” are still available for credit union leaders and volunteers interested in attending this year’s fly-in. Topics for discussion with lawmakers and regulators will include data breach liability, regulatory burden, and the credit union not-for-profit tax status.
Sessions such as "Ask the Expert Roundtable," "How to Grow Loans Without Traditional Marketing Efforts," "Trademark Law for Credit Unions" and "Leveraging Consumer Insights to Improve the Bottom Line" are just a sampling of the insightful presentations on the agenda.

“The Fair is a perfect example of how credit unions work in their communities to teach financial literacy to students. The students had the opportunity to work through real budget scenarios and make some tough decisions. I was impressed with how financially savvy some of them were. We look forward to doing another Fair at MHS in the future,” said MCCU’s Tucker.

The day of the event, students were provided with an in-depth budgeting sheet. This “real-world” exercise had each student budget his or her money wisely to make ends meet for one month. Students were required to find a place to live, obtain transportation, and pay for food and other essentials, as they visited 10 booths to obtains goods and service needed in everyday life. After visiting all of the booths, students balanced their budgets and reviewed their worksheets with a financial counselor.
