Crashers Program

"Crash" a Council Conference


CUNA Councils is proud to offer a "Crashers" program for some of our Conferences, facilitated by Filene’s Cooperative Trust.  A Council "Crash" is designed to grow and support rising stars and emerging leaders 35 & under, or "35 at heart", and to bring their voices to advocate for the role of young people in our industry.

 A Crash scholarship offers complimentary Conference registration, up to a $1000 travel and housing credit and a CUNA Councils membership*.  Crashers attend Conference sessions, get connected with a Councils Conference Buddy, and take part in a parallel schedule designed just for them. This schedule involves tailored talks and workshops to broaden their knowledge of the CU industry and opportunities for one-on-one contact with CUNA Council leaders and volunteers. 

We look forward to welcoming you at our Conference! Any questions, contact us.

The following 2020 Conferences will be offering a Crash.   


* Council membership is not required to apply, but we are seeking emerging leaders who hope to stay involved beyond this opportunity.  If you already have an active membership, you may gift the membership to someone else within your credit union. One Crash per person per year, and only one Crasher per credit union per event. Primarily job duties must fall within the Council whose Conference is being requested.
