Crash the GAC, the program that brings young credit union professionals to Washington, D.C., to experience the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), has extended its application deadline to November 20. Applications have been received from all but eight states and Washington, D.C. for the conference which runs February 21 – 25, 2016.
The Cooperative Trust and CUNA provide the opportunity for up-and-coming credit union professionals under the age of 35 to participate in keynote and breakout sessions, visit congressional leaders in Hike the Hill advocacy meetings, and network with more than 4,000 credit union leaders attending the CUNA GAC.
CUNA covers conference registration. Our Association offers a $500 scholarship to cover travel and housing costs for two Crashers, one from Maryland and one from Washington D.C.
Applicants are asked to submit a 60-second video, instead of a written essay, to make their case why they should be selected as a Crasher.
Crash the GAC sponsors one person from each state and the District of Columbia, plus one wild card attendee.
