> As we announced this week, we've also scheduled a special session on this topic for April 3 at the League Annual Meeting. Presenters for this session will be the movement's foremost experts (outside of NCUA) on this proposal – CUNA's Mary Dunn and Bill Hampel. You need not be registered for the League Annual Meeting to attend this one education session, but we do ask – whether registered for the Annual Meeting or not – that you drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you plan to attend.
This will aid us in booking sufficient meeting space.
