CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle took to the main stage at CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) Tuesday afternoon to hear from the more than 5,200 in attendance during his town hall.
After introducing CUNA’s engagement team, Nussle opened the floor to anyone with questions.
One attendee, part of the Crash the GAC program, asked Nussle how millennials can connect with non-millennials, a question Nussle said he usually hears in reverse, as in, how can non-millennials connect with millennials.
“We’re all people, and I think the best way is to do what you’re doing right now: come to an event like this,” Nussle said, and added some of his experiences as a young man seeking out a mentor. “I think we all should be willing to reach out, as millennials, as non-millennials, as people who have seen success in our career, or gone through experiences, to anyone that is willing to listen.”
During the event, Nussle also fielded questions on the Crasher program, credit unions in Washington, D.C., and urged credit union leaders to reach out to him or the CUNA team any time with questions.
