51 “Crashers” including two from the Dakotas will be attending CUNA’s 2022 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) that is taking place in Washington, DC on February 28 – March 3. According to Filene, his year’s group includes emerging credit union leaders representing many diverse roles, experiences and backgrounds across 47 states.
Congratulations to our two Dakota Crashers: Chelsea Gleich, Senior Communications & Digital Services Specialist at Town & Country CU (Minot, ND); and Andy Kronaizl, VP of Lending at Vermillion FCU (Vermillion, SD).
Crashers are selected through a highly competitive process; from 147 applications, only 51 were invited to Crash the GAC this year. The Crashers program operates under the direction of the Cooperative Trust, and each Crasher receives free registration, courtesy of CUNA.
"The Cooperative Trust is thrilled to welcome a new group of emerging leaders to Crash the GAC in 2022,” said Filene’s community development director, Cortney Angeley. “This group of rising professionals are change leaders in our industry and it's an honor to witness the evolution of leadership and culture taking place. We know these Crashers will bring spirit, passion, and hopefully a little bit of good fun and disruption to CUNA GAC."
