Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright will deliver the keynote address at CUNA’s 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington.
"Albright has made countless contributions to the nation's international presence as secretary of state and in her other roles. Her remarkable story and experience will make an impact on the GAC stage," CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said in a press release on Monday.
Albright is currently a Georgetown University School of Foreign Service professor in the practice of diplomacy. She is also chair of Albright Stonebridge Group and Albright Capital Management LLC.
She served as the first female U.S. Secretary of State and U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations under President Bill Clinton, wrote five New York Times best sellers, and received the U.S. Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2012.
CUNA’s GAC conference will take place from Feb. 23-27 in Washington. The conference “gathers more than 4,000 credit union decision-makers in the nation's capital to hear from influential leaders and guide the credit union movement in building and maintaining America's trust,” said CUNA’s release.
