Crash the GAC

Attendees at CUNA’s Community Credit Union and Growth Conference, jointly held with the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions’ annual meeting, learned exactly why it's great to be a Crasher at a breakout session titled “Young Professionals: Making Real Impact in Credit Union Communities.”

In the aftermath of last year’s GAC, “Crash the GAC” participants were challenged to affect change at their respective credit unions and in their communities by implementing practices they learned at the conference.

Danielle Buscher, learning and development manager, West Community CU, O’Fallon, Mo., explained to attendees that she leveraged her experience by incorporating an ongoing education program at her credit union to make sure employees are fully acquainted with the credit union mission.

The training engages employees and, by teaching them about the cooperative principles and credit union difference, drives them to get behind the movement, Buscher said.

Want to be part of the action at the next CUNA GAC? Cornerstone is providing scholarships, in partnership with The Cooperative Trust and CUNA. Apply before Oct. 31 at
