Young professionals should apply today for the annual “Crash the GAC” at CUNA’s 2020 Governmental Affairs Conference as Filene’s Cooperative Trust program prepares for a future with members of its young professional group stepping into leadership roles in the credit union industry. The 2020 GAC is Feb. 23 – 27. Applications close Nov 30.
The Cooperative Trust is the credit union industry’s largest young professional community. The “Crash” program is designed to empower credit union young professionals through professional development and by finding and amplifying their voices to advocate for the role of young people in the industry.
The power of this program comes through not only attending industry conferences, but also getting special content and access to the best of the best in the financial industry — opportunities that many others in this industry wouldn’t typically get.
CUNA is the primary sponsor of the Cooperative Trust and makes the Crash program possible for hundreds of young professionals each year. Once again in 2020, Filene will bring its largest group of Crashers to attend CUNA’s GAC. The program, throughout its 10-year tenure, has consistently created loyal credit union advocates from its ranks.
Credit union young professionals can apply to be a Crasher at all of Filene’s research events. Crashers get professional development tools, meet with industry leaders, network with peers and experience each event in a dynamic way. YPs can learn about the program and experiences of those involved in the 2019 GAC Crash through Filene’s podcast at filene.org/podcast.
