Lizzy Cheney, Recruiter with Members Cooperative Credit Union, was named to participate in The Cooperative Trust’s award-winning Crash program at this year’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington D.C. While this year marks the 15th “Crash the GAC” event, it is the first to be hosted by America’s Credit Unions.
The event scheduled to take place March 3 – 7 brings together industry leaders and advocates to discuss critical issues facing the credit union landscape. America’s Credit Unions generously covers the registration costs for 51 Crashers to attend the nation’s largest credit union event, presenting a tremendous opportunity for these young professionals to attend. The Cooperative Trust is thrilled to bring along seven additional Crashers who were sponsored by their credit unions.
"Congratulations to Lizzy Cheney for being selected to the Crash the GAC program," said Minnesota Credit Union Network Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Smith. "Young professional involvement in federal advocacy is critical in ensuring credit union interests are promoted in the future. The Crasher program is unmatched in preparing young leaders to advance the credit union movement."
The 2024 Crash the GAC delegation comprises 58 talented credit union professionals from across the country who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to the credit union movement. These emerging leaders have played pivotal roles within their credit unions and have shown a commitment to advancing the values and principles that define the industry.
