Ari Fleischer

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer has signed on as a keynote speaker for the Credit Union National Association's 2015 Governmental Affairs Conference, CUNA announced Tuesday.

"Ari Fleischer is an excellent addition to the 2015 GAC lineup," said Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO. "Credit unions will value his experience strategizing and managing crisis communications during some of this century's most impactful events. He will offer unique insight into the importance of communications, image and crisis management."

In his almost-four years working for President George W. Bush, Fleischer served as spokesman during the historic presidential vote recount, the September 11 attacks, two wars and the anthrax attack. Prior to his years as the White House press secretary, he served as spokesman for the Bush-Cheney presidential campaign.

Fleischer will join media influencer and business leader Arianna Huffington as a keynote speaker, along with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, USA (Ret.), former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan. McChrystal will speak at the CUNA ED (Filene) Talk.

The CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, set for March 8-12, is the credit union movement's premiere event. The event gathers more than 4,000 credit union professionals, supporters and activists in the nation's capital to advance the credit union movement by creating awareness, removing barriers, and discussing topics and techniques that foster service excellence to credit union members.

Cornerstone has secured a block of rooms at the Renaissance Hotel, conveniently located across the street from the Washington Convention Center. To reserve your room or register for the 2015 CUNA GAC, visit Cornerstone's website.
