"Crash" a Council Conference
The Finance; Lending; Marketing & Business Development; Operations & Member Experience; and Technology Councils offer a unique opportunity for young credit union professionals to attend their conferences through Filene's "Crashers" program, run by the Cooperative Trust.
Crash events aim to recruit, retain and develop young credit union professionals by providing opportunities not normally available. A Crash scholarship offers registration, travel and housing credits, allowing young credit union professionals to attend Council events whilst also taking part in a completely separate schedule allowing for development and growth during their stay. The separate schedule involves tailored breakout sessions and workshops which allow the ‘crashers’ to broaden their knowledge of the CU industry and in some instances complete a project onsite which will help ensure the future of credit unions.
