CU System
Sixteen 2011 GAC crashers named
MADISON, Wis. (1/26/11)--Sixteen up-and-coming credit union professionals will become the second annual young-adult group to participate in the credit union system’s biggest event--the Government Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, D.C., Feb. 27-March 2. There were more than 50 applicants to “Crash the GAC.” Last year, a group of about 20 credit union professionals from the under-30 age group received special scholarships from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to attend its 2010 GAC. The group called itself “Crash the GAC,” but intended to work cooperatively with CUNA to accommodate the interest younger professionals had in attending major credit union movement meetings such as the GAC. The group was organized by Brent Dixon, a young-adult adviser at the Filene Research Institute and a consultant with REAL Solutions. PSCU Financial Services and CUNA’s Center for Personal Development helped make the event happen. This year’s crashers are:
* Brandon Michaels, chief financial officer, Mazuma CU, Kansas City; * Kelly Griego, executive benefits sales and service representative, CUNA Mutual Group; * Amber Renick, member service officer, First Capital FCU, York, Pa.; * Amanda Thomas, marketing and business development manager, Members First CU, Columbus, Ohio; * Robert Lefkowicz, service center manager II, Suncoast Schools FCU, Tampa, Fla.; * Shannon Maloney, director of marketing, Seasons FCU, Middletown, Conn.; * Ronaldo Hardy, branch coordinator, La Capitol FCU, Baton Rouge, La.; * Sasha Kemble, trainer and silver-lining specialist, Verity CU, Seattle; * Whitney Thompson, member service officer, American Heritage FCU, Philadelphia; * Melissa Polley, member communications specialist, Wisconsin Credit Union League; * Lisa Totaro, marketing associate, Sunmark FCU, Latham, N.Y.; * Chris Wolgamott, community development liaison, Meritrust CU, Wichita, Kan.; * Sean Caploff-Jones, manager of member outreach, UMassFive College FCU, Hadley, Mass.; * Alexia Mavrakes, senior marketing associate, Aspire FCU, Clark, N.J.; * Michael Langhorst, assistant vice president/branch manager, CFE FCU, Lake Mary, Fla.; and * Jennifer Jenkins, lead marketing manager, PSECU, Harrisburg, Pa.
