Network members attended a special breakfast session during CUNA's 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. at the The National Museum of Women in the Arts. This event was by invitation only for network members, donors and special guests.

The featured speaker at this year's breakfast event was Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA). Rep. Speier introduced herself as an "unabashed supporter" of credit unions and challenged members to double the network's ranks by next year!
