Tom Ridge

Former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Tom Ridge has been added to the line-up of high-profile speakers at the Credit Union National Association's 2015 Governmental Affairs Conference. Ridge joins former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer and nationally syndicated columnist and Huffington Post Media Group chair, president, and editor-in-chief, Arianna Huffington, as keynoters.

Following the events of September, 11, 2001, Ridge became the first Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and shortly after became the first Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He is also former governor of Pennsylvania, a former congressman, and a decorated Vietnam veteran. He has extensive experience understanding cybersecurity and the growing threats it poses nationally and globally.

As the CEO of Ridge Global, Ridge currently leads a team of international experts that help businesses and governments address risk management, global trade security, emergency preparedness and response, strategic growth, infrastructure protection and crisis management, in addition to other issues. 

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.
