Special Meeting With CA, NV Leaders
National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz and NCUA Board Member Rick Metsger will address California and Nevada credit union leaders during the Credit Union National Association’s 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in late February at the Washington Convention Center.

Their visit presents an opportunity for California and Nevada credit union attendees to hear directly from the agency’s leaders and have the ability to ask questions regarding regulatory and supervisory direction for 2014.

“We are honored to have Chairman Matz and Board Member Metsger take time out of their day to meet with our members and foster continued collaboration in making the credit union system stronger,” said Sharon Lindeman, vice president of regulatory advocacy for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues. “We look forward to engaging in discussions with Chairman Matz and Board Member Metsger during these sessions.”

Both NCUA visits will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 25, in the Leagues’ hospitality suite, Rooms 140 A and B, on site at the convention center. Matz’s visit will be from 2-2:30 p.m., and Metsger will visit from 4:15-4:45 p.m. GAC attendees are encouraged to make these sessions a priority on their agenda.
