Application deadline for 2016 Crash the GAC pushed to Nov. 20

November 3, 2015

MADISON, Wis. (11/3/15)--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 Nov. 20.

Applications have been received from all but eight states and Washington, D.C., for the premier credit union conference Feb. 21-25.

The Cooperative Trust and CUNA provide the opportunity for up-and-coming credit union professionals to take part 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. Many state leagues offer scholarships to cover travel costs, and housing costs are also reduced because Crashers share rooms.

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.
