The Nebraska Credit Union League is pleased to announce that Jennifer Tworek of Family Focus FCU has been selected as Nebraska’s “Crasher” for the 2018 CUNA GAC by The Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association!
Crash the GAC is a career-changing program for credit union young professionals that allows them to experience CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference in a dynamic way with exclusive networking opportunities and mentoring sessions with industry leaders, previously from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, National Credit Union Foundation, Credit Union National Association, and CUNA Mutual Group.
“The Crashers program is great for young credit union professionals, for GAC, and for the entire movement,” said CUNA CEO and President Jim Nussle. “The Crashers get to network and participate in the premier event of the credit union industry, the GAC benefits from their enthusiasm and fresh perspectives, and the movement is invigorated by a new generation of fired-up advocates who have learned how to reach out to legislators to effect change.”
Nebraska’s Crasher is provided hotel and flight accommodations by the League and complimentary conference registration from CUNA. The Cooperative Trust announced that 78 Crashers will attend Crash the GAC representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
“Advocacy is not just for today. Advocacy is for the future and that’s why the League Board of Directors believes the Crash program is important enough to receive its strong support” said Scott Sullivan, President/CEO of the League.
