John Kerry, 68th Secretary of State, to Address CU Leaders at 2019 CUNA GAC

2004 Democratic presidential nominee and former secretary of State, John Kerry, will bring his extensive experience and insights directly to the leaders of the credit union movement as he delivers the key note address at the 2019 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in March.

Before becoming the Obama Administration’s chief diplomat, Kerry served three decades in the U.S. Senate, 28 years of which as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

John Kerry’s record of political service includes his role in the Paris Climate Accord, which he signed in 2016, his position on the bipartisan Joint Committee on Deficit Reduction and his groundbreaking diplomatic contact with Iran in 2013. He also served as a lieutenant in the United States Navy, returning from service in Vietnam with a Silver Star, a Bronze Star with Combat V, and three Purple Hearts. He is the best-selling author of both A Call to Service: My Vision for a Better America and This Moment on Earth.

CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference is the largest credit union advocacy event, gathering more than 5,000 credit union leaders annually to Washington D.C. to network, learn about the latest issues and hot topics in the credit union industry and meet with lawmakers to make a case for fair regulation on behalf of the more than 110 million credit union members nationwide.
