CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference is February 26 through March 2 in Washington, DC. And young credit union professionals have a chance to crash the party.
Through the NWCUA’s Grassroots Grant Fund and the Crash the GAC program from CUNA and The Cooperative Trust, Northwest credit union advocates have two ways to get their GAC experience funded.
Young credit union professionals can apply by January 1 to Crash the GAC, and the NWCUA has grassroots grant funds to help.
Gesa Credit Union’s Brian Griffith and Maps Credit Union’s Liz Henderson are passionate about sharing the credit union story, and about protecting its place on the financial landscape. And now they’ll get to share that passion on the industry’s biggest advocacy stage. Both have been selected to “crash” CUNA’s 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., this month.
Four young credit union professionals from Oregon and Washington were chosen to “crash” America’s Credit Union Conference next week. The 15 crashers will use design-thinking methodology to plan and build a new tool to help members living in poverty.
Weâ€™ve crashed the CUNA GAC, are fresh off a crash of the CUNA/WOCCU 1 Conference in Las Vegas and now weâ€™re coming to Washington State. Be prepared, to see something a bit different this September at the Washington Credit Union League Evolve & Emerge Convention: young blood.
If you know a credit union employee who is under 30-years-old, has shown commitment to their job and would like a fuller understanding of the credit union movement, they could attend the Washington Credit Union League Convention and Annual Business Meeting, or parts of it, with a group of like-minded youth.
