20 Filene Crashers will attend AACUC’s Commitment to Change Series

The Cooperative Trust announced that the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) is hosting 20 Crashers from across North America to attend AACUC’s Commitment to Change 5-part series.

Crash is a non-stop, career-changing program for credit union young professionals that allows them to participate in the industry’s conferences (in-person and virtually) with complimentary registration, exclusive networking opportunities, leadership development tools, and sessions with industry leaders from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, Visa, CUNA Mutual Group and the NCUA.

Crash AACUC will host 20 emerging leaders from across North America. Accepting the invitation to Crash this event comes with a one-year membership to AACUC that was generously gifted from AACUC.

Crash events are designed to spark new ways of thinking and build lasting relationships for emerging leaders and rising talent within the credit union industry. Crashers will end this series with a new hunger to help strengthen their communities and organizations. Crash is a launching pad for many young professionals’ careers and gives them the confidence and insight to make a profound and lasting impact in the industry.

In the wake of COVID-19, Filene’s Cooperative Trust has evolved the Crash program to ensure it is living its purpose and mission – to provide emerging leaders a voice and development opportunities they wouldn’t normally have access to. Beginning in January 2021, Filene will take Crashers on a 10-month journey through Filene’s research Centers of Excellence. Crashers will participate in monthly virtual sessions that will include the cutting-edge research Filene is known for, while providing a space and cohort for the Crashers to continue to network and develop. Recruitment begins Sept. 1.
