CU System
Applications for crashing the GAC due Friday
MADISON, Wis. (2/12/12)--Applications to "crash" the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) are due Friday.

The CUNA GAC will be held March 18-22 in Washington, D.C.

Fifteen young credit union leaders will be selected to Crash the GAC, said the Filene Research Institute.

The previously named "Crash Network" has been renamed the "Cooperative Trust," which carries the support of three-year seed funding from CUNA Mutual Group.

Crashers will design new ways for credit unions to use the cooperative model to grow, improve their communities and heighten advocacy. The crasher group with the most promising initiative, chosen by a panel of judges, will present its concept and results at CUNA's Community & Growth Conference in October.

Held for a third consecutive year, Crash the GAC will include many of its familiar elements. CUNA's Center for Professional Development has offered full scholarships for crashers to attend the conference. Crashers will attend conversational mentor sessions with system leaders, hill hikes to meet their state's representatives, and the Thunderpunch Party.

In addition to Crash the GAC, the Cooperative Trust has three national and four regional events planned with many new opportunities, including a second round of The Collider innovation tournament.
