The Oklahoma City office of the Cornerstone Credit Union League held a very successful Governmental Affairs Conference on March 21-22. The conference hosted more than 90 attendees and was kicked off by Jason Boesch, chair of the Oklahoma Credit Union Political Action Committee (OCUPAC) and the annual OCUPAC board meeting.

Attendees enjoyed featured speaker Marc Nuttle, a well-known political strategist who has advised on many campaigns. He also helped with the transition of President-Elect Trump by discussing prospects of restructuring, renegotiating, and negotiating international trade agreements.
