MADISON, Wis. (12/23/14)--The deadline has been extended an extra week to Jan. 9 for those interested in applying for Crash the GAC.
The program offers young credit union professionals from all 50 states and the District of Columbia an opportunity to experience the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference in a way like no other.
CUNA and The Cooperative Trust have received applications from 39 states and the District of Columbia, with a goal of having a crasher from every state.
