The CUNA CFO Council and the Cooperative Trust and are co-hosting the first ever “Crash the CFO Council Conference.” The conference will be held May 18-21 in Las Vegas.

“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to provide young credit union professionals the chance to be a part this event that brings together 400 to 500 credit union financial experts,” says Suzanne Weinstein, CFO Council vice chair and CFO of Orlando Federal Credit Union. “We’re pleased to work with the Cooperative Trust to help make this happen.”

Weinstein says each Crasher will receive a full conference registration from the CUNA CFO Council, as well as a year’s membership to the council and up to $1,000 for travel expenses.

With a focus on the future of finance within credit unions, “Crash the CFO Council Conference” will give young professionals the opportunity to meet with credit union CFOs and other industry leaders, providing deeper insight into the world of credit union finance and planning.

The Cooperative Trust will run a tailored program alongside the main event and allow for mentor sessions with key individuals. Previous sessions have included guests from the National Credit Union Foundation, CUNA, NCUA, Filene Research Institute, and CUNA Mutual Group.

“We are excited to partner with the CFO Council” says James Marshall, leader of the Cooperative Trust. “This is an exciting opportunity for our Crashers to dive deeper into credit union function and functionality as opposed to mission, as with our Crash the GAC event. Having worked with the CUNA Lending Council previously, we are excited to be able to work with the CFO Council on a ‘Crash’ program for their 2014 national conference.”
