NAPERVILLE, Ill. (1/25/12)--Credit union professionals age 30 or younger will have the opportunity to "crash" the Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) 82nd Annual Convention April 26-28.

Crash Illinois is limited to 15 people. The deadline for applications Feb. 17 .Crash attendees will be announced during the week of Feb. 20, said the league.

This initiative is part of The Cooperative Trust (formerly The Crash Network), a grassroots organization comprised of hundreds of young credit union professionals.

Sponsored by ICUL and CUNA Mutual Group, Crash Illinois will allow young credit union professionals to participate in the event by attending the full convention and additional mentor sessions with industry thought leaders and to build relationships with other young credit union professionals. After a crasher welcome on Thursday before the Annual Convention kick-off, other sessions and a lunch will be held for the group.

Brent Dixon, young adult adviser at the Filene Research Institute is the founder of The Cooperative Trust. At the ICUL Convention, Dixon will present two sessions: "Attracting and Retaining Younger Members" and "Design Thinking: A Human Centered Approach to Innovation."

Connie Payton, wife of the late football legend Walter Payton, will be event's keynote speaker.
