Crash Network Will Take 15 to CUNA's 2011 GAC
The Crash Network is looking for 15 young credit union professionals to attend CUNA's 2011 GAC and complete a service project designed to improve their credit union or the greater movement.
Created in 2010, the Crash Network is a low-cost way for those under 30 to become more deeply involved in the credit union industry.
"It was a privilege last year to attend [CUNA's GAC] and network with the best and brightest credit unions have to offer," said Brent Dixon, young adult advisor with the Filene Research Institute and Crash Network founder. "Crash the GAC was the spark for what has become a completely grassroots young professionals group with over 100 members."
As the official Crash the GAC sponsor, PSCU Financial Services will cover the cost of Crashers' lodging, meals and conference reception. CUNA's Center for Professional Development has offered full scholarships for Crashers to attend the conference.
Candidates must work for a league- or CUNA-affiliated credit union and fill out an application at www.CrashtheGAC.com no later than Jan. 14.
