Get Involved: Crash Events

Find out what many are talking about and learn how you can be a “crasher.”

What is Crash?

Several years ago, credit union young professionals decided they wanted to be included and attend large credit union conferences traditionally reserved for more seasoned staff. While they were viewed as unconventional conference attendees, that did not stop them from taking a stance and “crashing” the event. A group of credit union young professionals worked collectively to share their voice and express their desired to participate in various events. This initial “crash” has helped open conversations about getting credit union young professionals involved in the movement with more seasoned industry leaders.

In the time since, these original “crashers” blazed a trail. The Crash Program has been adopted across the movement, welcoming credit union young professionals to a number of events. The once “crashers” are now a welcomed addition at many conferences and meetings. The fresh perspective of young professionals offers an enlightening experience for all.
