DCUC CRASH EVENT




So - what is a Crash Event?

A Crash event is tailored specifically for the young professionals at your credit union, and is planned as part of an existing credit union conference.
Do you have a young professional staffer (age 35 and under or 35 at heart) that shows strong potential and leadership qualities? If so, we would like to invite them to apply for this Crash Event with the Cooperative Trust. A maximum of 12 individuals will be selected by our Crash Committee (one per credit union) to attend the upcoming DCUC Conference in Williamsburg, VA.
“Crashers” will participate in many of the regular conference sessions and events, but will also have a special track with workshops designed specifically for them. This will be a nonstop event for your young professional. Their action-packed schedule and interaction with industry mentors will help them develop as a future credit union executive!


Brief History

The first ever Crash event was launched in 2010 by what is now the Cooperative Trust, a credit union young professional program and community by Filene Research Institute. The goal was to introduce younger credit union professionals, who show strong leadership potential, with some of our important industry events. Most credit union organizations have focused on attracting experienced decision makers to attend their conferences. With the high cost of travel and registrations, many credit unions had been unable to offer this opportunity to their younger staff. So it was decided to provide an event that these young professionals could attend. The true purpose was to help our credit union industry realize that we must plan for the future by including younger generations. Armed with this information, the Cooperative Trust organized the first ever Crash event called “Crash the GAC” at CUNA’s 2010 Governmental Affairs Conference. Since then, the Cooperative Trust’s Crash program hosts more than 100 Crashers every year at dozens of Crash opportunities, and the award-winning Cooperative Trust community has grown to more than 1,700 young professionals in the credit union industry.

2018 Showcase with a Purpose


This year, in keeping with our goal to support our troops and veterans in their time of need, the 2018 recipient of our fundraising will be Hope For The Warriors. In 2012, DCUC supported the great work that Hope for the Warriors does to assist combat wounded service members, their families and the families of the fallen, and we have decided to support their good work once again.

They are an organization founded in 2006 by and for those in the military community in Camp Lejeune, NC, as they witnessed firsthand the effects war imparts on service members and their families. They have positively impacted the lives of over 13,000 people in an effort to return them to service of some nature. Their original motto, “No sacrifice forgotten, nor need unmet,” continues to guide their purpose and they are a dynamic, agile, and bold organization that adapts to meet the diverse needs of the military community.

Through the years, giving back to a worthy cause that supports our troops has significantly enhanced our conference and made a real difference in the lives of our wounded warriors and veterans. This, our 15th year of helping those who serve our country, will be no different!

Join us to network with some outstanding corporate partners and our own credit union colleagues to bid on terrific silent auction items to help support the mission of Hope For The Warriors.

Here are just a few of the opportunities to help!

• Donate an item from your credit union to the Showcase Silent Auction or choose to make a donation directly from your credit union.
• Purchase mulligans at the 25th Annual VADM Vincent Lascara Golf Tournament.
• Buy raffle tickets for the very popular 50/50 Drawing.
• Bid on silent auction donations. The DCUC Board will match the funds raised!
