PSCU’s Metzger Selected for Crash the GAC 2018

Public Service Credit Union Staff Attorney to Attend the Credit Union National Association’s Annual Governmental Affairs Conference

LONE TREE, CO (February 1, 2017) – Public Service Credit Union (PSCU) is pleased to announce that Ben Metzger, PSCU Staff Attorney, has been selected by The Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to attend Crash the GAC 2018.

Crash the GAC is a career-changing program for credit union young professionals that allows them to experience CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in a dynamic way with exclusive networking opportunities. The conference includes mentoring sessions with industry leaders previously from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, National Credit Union Foundation, Credit Union National Association, and CUNA Mutual Group. This unique opportunity is provided by The Cooperative Trust and CUNA, in association with Credit Union Leagues/Associations.

“The Crashers program is great for young credit union professionals, for GAC, and for the entire movement,” said CUNA CEO and President Jim Nussle. “The Crashers get to network and participate in the premier event of the credit union industry, the GAC benefits from their enthusiasm and fresh perspectives, and the movement is invigorated by a new generation of fired-up advocates who have learned how to reach out to legislators to effect change.”

CUNA pays Crashers’ registration fee to attend the conference, and many state leagues and associations provide scholarships or other financial assistance. This year 78 Crashers will attend Crash the GAC, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

“This is a very exciting way to engage with our leaders and other credit union professionals,” said Metzger. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to support the credit union movement and represent Colorado at Crash the GAC 2018.”
