Hanscom FCU’s Laura Galeski selected to Crash the GAC in 2019
HANSCOM AFB, MA (February 27, 2019) — Hanscom Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce that Laura Galeski has been selected to attend Crash the GAC 2019 by The Cooperative Trust and Credit Union National Association to represent Massachusetts.
“Being chosen to crash the GAC this year is such an honor, and I’m thrilled I was chosen,” said Galeski, who is the credit union’s Social Responsibility Manager. “I’m excited to ‘hike the hill’ and lobby in favor of credit unions. I believe credit unions aren’t in the business of banking; we’re in the business of community.”
Crash the GAC is a non-stop, career-changing program for credit union young professionals that allows them to participate in the industry’s largest advocacy conference with complimentary registration, exclusive networking opportunities, leadership development tools, and mentoring sessions with industry leaders from organizations such as Filene Research Institute, CUNA, and National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).
“The Crashers program is a great opportunity for young credit union professionals, the conference, and the entire movement at large,” said CUNA CEO and President Jim Nussle. “Crashers at the GAC will have the opportunity to network and participate in the premier event of the credit union industry. We will all benefit greatly from their enthusiasm and fresh perspectives as the movement is invigorated by a new generation of advocates.”
CUNA provides Crashers with a complimentary registration fee to attend the conference, and many state leagues and associations provide scholarships or other financial assistance. This year 100 Crashers will attend Crash the GAC, representing every state in the nation for the Cooperative Trust’s 10th Crash the GAC event.
“We have a strong legacy of sending our finest young professionals to Crash the GAC,” said Paul Marotta, Hanscom FCU’s Chairman of the Board. “Laura is an extraordinary talent, and in the short time she’s been with our credit union, has made a significant impact on our social responsibility efforts. She has so much to offer our industry, and I’m excited to see how far she goes in her credit union career.”
