In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, the Credit Union House Board of Directors held a ceremonial ribbon cutting to kick off their Annual Meeting on February 27. Credit Union House holds its annual meeting in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) each year.
Brett Thompson, chair of Credit Union House and president/CEO of the Wisconsin Credit Union League, greeted the group gathered to celebrate 20 years of successful operations. These range from those “who have supported Credit Union House since it was a concept 20-plus years ago to others who are visiting for the first time.”
Thompson thanked Leagues, the American Association of Credit Union Leagues (AACUL), CUNA, credit unions, and system partners for their cooperative efforts.
“Without your tremendous support, this facility would still be just an idea instead of a permanent credit union presence on Capitol Hill,” Thompson continued. “This facility fulfills a promise made to our movement and to our government that we would be ever vigilant. Here’s to another 20 years and beyond!”
Following the ribbon cutting, the Credit Union House board elected Diana Dykstra, President/CEO of the California & Nevada Credit Union Leagues, as its newest board director.
Other members of the Credit Union House board members are:
Dykstra was elected to fill the seat vacated by Scott Earl, president/CEO of the Mountain West Credit Union Association. Earl, who had been on the Credit Union House board since 2013, was thanked for his service.

Credit Union House is a special events venue on Capitol Hill that exists to meet the needs of the members of the credit union community while they are in Washington, D.C. It is owned by every statewide credit union association/league and the American Association of Credit Union Leagues (AACUL). It fosters strong relationships between advocates and elected officials, creates a universal, positive awareness of credit unions, and is a powerful symbol of the movement it proudly represents
