Bob Woodward, Major Garrett headline NAFCU's Caucus
Bob Woodward, who broke the Watergate scandal and is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and associate editor of the Washington Post, and Major Garrett, CBS News' chief White House correspondent, will headline NAFCU's 2018 Congressional Caucus Sept. 11-14 in Washington.
“NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus will allow attendees to engage with numerous prominent Washington policymakers and showcase the benefits credit unions provide to their 114 million members and local communities,” said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. “With many pressing issues facing the financial services industry – from lurking data security threats to reforming our housing finance system to costly and burdensome regulations – NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus serves as an important forum for reform.”
During Wednesday's opening Caucus keynote, Woodward will pull the curtain back on Washington and its leaders to help credit unions understand what's really going on in the halls of power in an age of 24-hour news, social media and changing politics.
Garrett will provide the closing keynote Friday at Caucus. He has reported on the nation's pressing issues for 30 years and has covered five presidents. Garrett is known for asking tough questions and is universally recognized as fair and balanced. He is also the author of three books.
In addition to Woodward and Garrett, credit union leaders will hear from dozens of prominent policymakers during Caucus (see who's been announced so far). Speakers will discuss the future of credit unions, regulatory and legislative proposals, the Trump Administration, the Congressional midterm elections and how American politics will move forward.
NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus is open to both members and nonmembers; registration is still open. Stay tuned to NAFCU Today for more updates on speakers leading up to the event and follow #NAFCUCaucus on Twitter for additional coverage.
