Tarrant County’s Credit Union has announced that Meghan Jamison has been selected to attend Crash the GAC 2018, sponsored by The Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association to represent Cornerstone Credit Union League.

"It is an immense honor to represent not only the Lone Star State, but also Tarrant County’s Credit Union," Jamison said. "I am excited beyond words to engage with industry leaders and lawmakers in our nation's capital to promote the Credit Union Movement!"

Crash the GAC is a career-changing program for credit union young professionals that allows them to experience CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference in a dynamic way with exclusive networking opportunities and mentoring sessions with industry leaders, which have previously come from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, National Credit Union Foundation, Credit Union National Association, and CUNA Mutual Group.

“The Crashers program is great for young credit union professionals, for GAC, and for the entire movement,” said CUNA CEO and President Jim Nussle. “The Crashers get to network and participate in the premier event of the credit union industry, the GAC benefits from their enthusiasm and fresh perspectives, and the movement is invigorated by a new generation of fired-up advocates who have learned how to reach out to legislators to effect change.”

Credit Union National Association provides Crashers with a complimentary registration fee to attend the conference, and many state leagues and associations provide scholarships or other financial assistance. This year 78 Crashers will attend Crash the GAC representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

“We’re excited about this opportunity for Meghan," said TCCU’s CEO, Lily Newfarmer. "She has shown a true interest in advocacy and a genuine commitment to the credit union movement. She is a rarity among young professionals and is a real asset to our industry."

“As we continue to grow The Cooperative Trust and Crash opportunities, we’re always challenging ourselves to elevate and advance the program to provide the most impact for young professionals and the credit union system,” says Lauren Culp, Manager of The Cooperative Trust. “We know that it’s more important than ever that young people have a voice and are included in the conversation as we look to the future of our industry. This year, thanks to the generous donations of several forward-thinking credit unions, we’re thrilled to provide the Crash the GAC opportunity to an additional 26 young professionals.”
