League launches Crash Delaware initiative
NEW CASTLE, Del. (2/23/12)--In the latest addition to the credit union crash movement, the Delaware Credit Union League is awarding 10 free registrations to its annual conference, April 19-20.

Crash Delaware will launch the league's new young professionals' initiative.

Delaware credit union professionals under 35 are eligible to apply. Applicants must be employed by their credit union for at least one year and have the approval of their CEO. The deadline to apply is March 9.

Delaware crashers will participate in scheduled education events, and network with credit union leaders to share ideas about the future of credit unions and how credit unions can meet the needs of their generation, the league said.

Registration and hotel accommodations for one evening will be covered by the league. Crashers will share a room and will need to provide their own transportation.

Nationally, the burgeoning crash movement is known as the Filene Research Institute's Cooperative Trust. It was formerly the "Crash Network," a group of young credit union professionals that encourages growth for, and change by, young credit union professionals.

The Crash Network was the brainchild of Brent Dixon, Filene's young adult adviser. Twenty-five young professionals first crashed the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in 2010 (News Now Dec. 6, 2011.)
