GAC Monday Session Sights and Sounds


The 2008 CUNA GAC is officially underway! The exhibit hall opened today, and the first general sessions were held at the Washington Convention Center.

The new location is being hailed by everyone as a roomy facility that is really going to allow this conference to continue its growth in the future. NC credit unions have heard the call to pack the convention center, bringing 120 people to the conference! This is an increase of more than 30 people from last year! All told, more than 4,700 credit union people are here – it’s a glorious thing!

The video captures a few of the sights and a few thoughts from the NC contingent. Also, Brent Dixon is doing terrific work posting pictures, audios and videos from national CU figures at GAC. You’ll find this on the REAL Solutions page .. http://realsolutions.coop/. Check it out! (A late edit to add that our friends in Michigan are chronicling the GAC day-by-day as well, and you’ll find news-style reports from the Michigan CU League’s Mike Bridges at http://cunagac.cutvonline.com/.) 

We’re shutting down the videocamera for today, and will spend the evening watching State Employees’ Credit Union being honored at the Herb Wegner dinner. It’s a great day to be a Tar Heel! More video highlights tomorrow …

  3. Great report, Jeff. I wish I was there. Congrats on getting your NC crew out in full force this year.

    I think the GAC is a great example for how social media can be a useful and nearly essential tool in today’s world. I look forward to the rest of your video coverage.

  4. @Mike – wish you were able to be with us this year!
