2019 Conference

One of our highest rated conferences ever was our annual event held in Washington DC in 2016. The venue was an integral part to making that program the highest rated ever in POCUA history at the time. So we are proud to announce that we will be returning to Clyde's of Gallery of Gallery Place from May 19 to 21, 2019 for the 16th Annual Police Officers' Credit Union Conference.

Come and experience the quality food and service at Clyde's again in 2019 as you network with other executives and volunteers among Police Credit Unions, Law Enforcement Organizations, and valued POCUA Business Partners throughout the country. Learn from experts within and outside of the credit union industry to take your business of serving Law Enforcement and their families to the next stage of growth. And make memories during the receptions and the tour of the National Law Enforcement Museum.

  • Near several historic attractions.
