Young pros to crash Wash. league convention
SEATAC, Wash. (8/4/10)--The Washington Crashers invites 13 credit union professionals age 30 or younger to “crash” the Washington Credit Union League Convention Sept. 14-16 in Seatac, Wash. Professionals have until Aug. 16 to apply for membership in the group. Applications can be submitted through the group’s website, www.wa.crash.coop. The group will host an event outside the convention with networking and career-building opportunities. Due to tight budgets and a lack of opportunity, many younger credit union employees have limited-to-no access and growth opportunities such as the league convention, the Crashers said. The event follows a trend born from a 2010 Filene Research Institute project in which a group of young credit union professionals “crashed” the Credit Union National Association (CUNA)’s Governmental Affairs Conference and the CUNA/World Council of Credit Unions’ The 1 Credit Union Conference. Three crashers of those events helped create the Washington event. “We wanted to continue the momentum and bring the career-building experience to more local professionals,” said Matt Vance, marketing director, Industrial CU, Bellingham, Wash. “Expect to learn, network and be animated to propel the credit union movement,” added Kris Holechek, human resources coordinator, Lacamas Community CU, Camas, Wash. Jen Shefner, crasher and assistant vice president of e-commerce at Columbia CU, Vancouver, Wash., said her former crash experience was unparalleled with anything she’d ever done during her eight-year credit union career. “I not only came back inspired by our national movement, but [came back] a more confident leader and committed credit union employee,” she said. “Credit union veterans should encourage their future leaders to apply for our upcoming event.” For more information, use the links.
