MADISON, Wis. (3/9/11)--After a whirlwind week at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington D.C. last week,16 newly inaugurated and energized crashers will “Rehash the Crash” with a free webinar outlining their plans for improving credit unions nationwide. The Crash Network is a group of under-30 professionals looking for deeper involvement in the credit union industry. The “crash” concept is the group’s way of gently elbowing its way into mainstream credit union meetings to rub shoulders with system leaders and create networking and educational opportunities. As part of the application to “Crash the GAC,” the crashers were asked to submit a project idea they wanted to pursue after attending the conference. During the webinar, crasher will share their projects, what they learned through the GAC, and their progress made to take their idea to next level. Projects range from developing localized meet-up groups, to expanding financial literacy efforts, to reaching out to other young adult credit union employees. CUNA’s Center for Professional Development offered full scholarships for crashers to attend the GAC.
