MADISON, Wis. (1/4/13)--Registration for the 2013 Crash the GAC-a group of young credit union leaders who will attend the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Government Affairs Conference (GAC)--is due Jan. 10.
The CUNA GAC will be held Feb. 24-28 in Washington D.C.
The 2013 Crash the GAC, which receives scholarships to attend from CUNA, celebrates its fourth year at the conference.
This year's Crash will coincide with the regular conference agenda established by CUNA (including scholarships for registration). However, it also will include a half-day design thinking workshop that focuses on member business lending.
Design thinking is a process that uses human-centered research, pattern recognition, and prototyping to solve problems.
As a part of the workshop, Crashers will research the needs of young small-business owners through live interviews and observation of Washington D.C. metroplex entrepreneurs.
