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…

Nebraska credit unions will host the Carnival for Kids on Tuesday, August 8th, 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 email@example.com if you want to volunteer.
