Networking, Food Tasting, and More
Almost $3,000 was raised by California and Nevada credit unions for the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) during the first-ever PAC Culinary Experience held during the week of the Credit Union National Association's 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference.

CULAC is CUNA’s federal Political Action Committee (PAC). Click here to view more photos associated with this story.

For $110 per ticket, participants enjoyed an evening of networking with colleagues and learning more about Washington, D.C.'s colorful past, while also tasting some of the city's most renowned venues, including a three-course meal at 701 Restaurant and dessert and wine pairing at Cowgirl Creamery.

The event guide also pointed out places of interest along the way, including Ford's Theater, where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865. All in all, the PAC Culinary Experience brought together historic, architectural and cultural focal points as participants walked through Penn Quarter and Chinatown.
