CUNA GAC crashers host free webinar
MADISON, Wis. (3/19/10)--"Crashers" at the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) will host a free webinar entitled "Rehash the Crash: They came, they saw, they Crashed the GAC." The webinar, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET March 30, will take an in-depth look into how the crash came about, the crashers' experience and their perspective and opinions on the future of the credit union movement. Budget restraints mean most credit union employees under age 30 have limited access to learning and networking opportunities such as last month's GAC. Crash the GAC was created as a low-cost solution to the problem. Crash participants were a diverse cross-segment of Gen Y, ranging in age from 22 to 30 and holding industry skills from the areas of marketing, lending, branch management and community outreach. "We created the crash to get younger credit union professionals more involved in the movement," said Brent Dixon, crash creator and young adult adviser for the Filene Research Institute. "Many would have never had the chance to attend CUNA GAC if it weren't for the crash. Our goal was to surround ourselves with credit union leaders and pioneers to learn, inspire and challenge us to further the credit union movement." Plans are being made for a Crash The 1, where 20 under-30 credit union professionals will go to Las Vegas July 11-14 for The 1 Credit Union Conference hosted by the Credit Union National Association and the World Council of Credit Unions. Participant and sponsor information will be available in early April. To register for the free Rehash The Crash webinar, or for more information use the links.
