This year I was selected to represent Nebraska credit unions young professionals by ‘CRASHING’ the Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), in Washington D.C. What an honorable privilege this was to experience the Credit Union Movement in full force with over 5,000 innovators. I have never been so touched by the kindness and compassion of so many, of whom are a part of this cooperative trust. The GAC is so much more than just the largest lobbying event for credit unions. This conference is a time of fellowship and relationship building with new and existing credit union colleagues. Crashing the GAC is a beautiful opportunity for young professionals to aspire to be stronger leaders in their credit unions by sharing the authentic difference. Click Here to Read More…
Mad City Money
“Mad City Money” is a 2½-hour hands-on simulation that appeals to youth and gives them a taste of the real world. High school students take on the role of an adult in futuristic Mad City. They’re given jobs, income, a family, and debt. The challenge? Visit merchants to select housing, transportation, food, household necessities, clothing, day care, and other wants and needs while building a budget.
We are also looking for volunteers to help us run another Mad City Money session on April 6th at 3:30 pm. Please contact Amy Shaw or Melissa Mausbach if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.

Nebraska credit unions will host the Carnival for Kids on Tuesday, May 9th, 2017. The events are held in the Children’s Hospital lobby for the children staying at the hospital or simply coming in to any of there outpatient care clinics. Their siblings are also welcome to attend. The carnival games, prizes, activities and crafts allow kids to be kids, forgetting for a brief period of time about their illness and treatment. The carnival also gives credit unions another way to give back to their community and provide credit union volunteers a chance to see first hand what our fundraising efforts are supporting.
To make this event happen, donations of $300 and 10-12 volunteers are needed. Your credit union can choose to make a financial donation towards the costs of the event or by providing volunteers to help. All carnivals are held from 10:30 – 11:30 am in the lobby of Children’s Hospital at 8301 West Dodge Road, Omaha, NE. Volunteers will need to arrive by 10:15 am and be finished at 11:45 am. Credit Unions for Kids T-shirts will be provided for any volunteers who do not have one. Click Here for brochure to donate or volunteer. Email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to volunteer.
