Crash the GAC: Missouri Scholarship Available

If you haven’t attended the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) and have always wanted to go - here is your chance. Applications are now open to Missouri young professionals (age 30 and younger) to Crash the 2014 CUNA GAC.

The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) is partnering with the Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to make the 2014 “Crash the GAC” event bigger and better than ever. The goal is to have crashers from every state and Washington, D.C.

The GAC in Washington D.C. takes place Feb 23-27. In addition to the core schedule of GAC events and legislative visits with your state attendees, crashers take part in exclusive sessions that will provide a greater focus on credit union advocacy and activities that can help to grow and promote credit unions on the state and federal level.

Each crasher will receive a full conference registration, courtesy of CUNA, and a Cooperative Trust membership. Crashers and their credit unions are responsible for travel, hotel and food costs.  The scholarship from MCUA will pay for airfare and the hotel stay for Missouri’s selected crasher.

More information is available at the Crash the GAC websiteApplications are due by December 17, 2013. If you have any questions, please contact Amy McLard, MCUA Senior Vice President of Advocacy, via email or the Cooperative Trust via email.
