Unitus’ Consumer Loan Underwriter, Shawn Ohki, was selected to attend Crash the GAC 2020 by The Cooperative Trust and CUNA. There he represented Unitus as well as the Northwest Credit Union Association.

“Crashing the GAC is a dream come true for myself and many of my fellow credit union colleagues. It is one of the biggest ways we can make a difference in the national level,” said Ohki. “It is an incredible opportunity to help raise awareness nationwide that people can and should expect more from their financial institutions.”

It is the industry’s largest advocacy conference sporting complimentary registration, exclusive networking opportunities, leadership development tools, and mentoring sessions with industry leaders from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, CUNA, and National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).

“The Crashers bring so much energy and passion to CUNA GAC,” said CUNA President and CEO Jim Nussle. “I always look forward to meeting each new group, knowing that these folks are the people who will lead our movement in the future. I am so impressed with this year’s class and I am excited to see where this leadership opportunity takes them in their careers. CUNA is proud to join Filene and The Cooperative Trust to make this special program possible year after year.”

Crashers are selected though a highly competitive process, earning free attendance at CUNA GAC where they can network and learn from over 5,000 top credit union advocates.
