Columbia, SC and Raleigh, NC – The Carolinas Credit Union League is pleased to announce for the second consecutive year, five Carolinas credit union professionals have been selected to attend Crash the GAC. A program hosted by The Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

Crash the GAC, celebrating its 10th year, 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. Crashers were selected based on their 60-second videos on why they are great candidates to Crash the GAC.

In celebration of the milestone, 100 crashers were selected to attend the conference, representing every state in the nation.

Congratulations to our five Crashers:

  • Andrea Finley, SC Telco FCU, South Carolina
  • Hannah McGee, Palmetto Citizens FCU, South Carolina
  • Barbara Mojica, Coastal CU, North Carolina
  • Morgan Travis, Telco Community CU, North Carolina
  • Amanda Vaughan, Coastal CU, North Carolina

“As the Cooperative Trust and Crash program grow and evolve, we continue to see positive impact on the careers of young professionals in the credit union space,” said Lauren Culp, manager of The Cooperative Trust. “As we know developing this next generation of credit union leaders is critical to our success as an industry, we’re thrilled to work with CUNA to offer the opportunity to even more young professionals this year than ever before.”

Crash the GAC and other Crash events throughout the year are designed to spark new ways of thinking and build lasting relationships for young professionals within the credit union industry. Crashers will leave the nation’s capital with a new hunger to help strengthen their communities and organizations. This highly competitive opportunity is a launching pad for many young professionals’ careers and gives them the confidence and insight to make a profound and lasting impact in the industry.
