2015 Hike the Hill
Sept. 29 - Oct. 1, Washington D.C.
Hike the Hill provides credit union representatives with an exciting opportunity to meet with federal legislators and talk about top credit union issues, face-to-face, in Washington, D.C. During Hike the Hill visits, credit union professionals and volunteers meet with the entire Minnesota Congressional Delegation and typically visit the NCUA Board, CUNA and/or Credit Union House on Capitol Hill.
The three-day Washington, D.C., trip will include a legislative and regulatory briefing with CUNA to provide information on the critical issues facing credit unions as well as background information about the current happenings on the Hill. Attendees will then meet with offices of Minnesota's Congressional Delegation. The trip will also include visits to regulatory agencies including the NCUA.
Flight and Hotel
Attendees are responsible for booking their own flight to and from Washington, D.C. Due to varying meetings, the Network recommends that you schedule your flight into D.C. to arrive by mid-afternoon on September 29 and returning to Minnesota late afternoon on October 1. Additional details on the schedule will be available to attendees as the event gets closer.
