CU Execs, Vendors Show Support
Nearly 100 credit union executives and industry vendors played in the 2013 PAC Golf Tournament on Monday morning at the Presidio Golf Course in San Francisco, raising $40,000 for the PAC.
The funds will help ensure credit unions are able to support candidates who understand the unique role the credit union movement plays in the financial services marketplace.
Part of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues' Annual Meeting and Convention every year, the annual tournament is a respected event that credit union CEOs of all asset sizes look forward to. Friendships are strengthened as peers from California and Nevada credit unions share the opportunities and challenges facing their individual credit unions.
The California Credit Union League Political Action Committee members congratulate the following winners:
The tournament is also an opportunity to have some fun. Participants took in scenic views of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge while swinging and putting on a course that was established in 1895. U.S. presidents, famous military officers, civilians, and visitors from around the world have all enjoyed the Presidio, the second-oldest course west of the Mississippi River that's renowned for its rich history.
"The annual PAC Golf Tournament has always turned out to be a fun and meaningful event, as participants have the opportunity to support PAC and enjoy a game of golf with colleagues—all in the same morning," said Andrea Svoboda, manager of political advocacy for the Leagues. "If you are not here, you are missing out."
All sponsorships contributions will be attributed to the CCUL-PAC (Independent Expenditure Account) or NCUL-PAC. Contributions are not tax-deductible for state or federal tax purposes.
