Financial Center Employee Selected to Crash the 2014 CUNA Government Affairs Conference
Kyhle Porter, Personal Sales and Service Manager at Financial Center Federal Credit Union joins other credit union young professionals for the 2014 CUNA Government Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington, DC from February 23-27.
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and The Cooperative Trust partnered with state credit union leagues to select Crashers from each state and Washington, DC. With 47 young professionals from credit unions across the United States and a record number of applications received, the 2014 Crash the CUNA GAC will be the largest Crash event to date.
“Financial Center couldn’t be more proud to be represented by Kyhle at the GAC conference,” said Annette Roy, Vice President of Membership Development. “He is passionate about taking action to educate politicians, as well as the public, about how banking with a credit union can save people money and benefit their community, and that is exactly the type of person we want serving our members.”
Porter has worked at Financial Center for over two years and has moved up quickly from a Personal Sales Representative to an Operations Sales and Service Manager to his current position. He is currently attending IUPUI majoring in political science. By crashing the GAC, Porter hopes to gain a greater knowledge of the credit unions’ influence on American politics and policy, and what greater role he can play in sharing the credit union cooperative model and philanthropic philosophy with more Hoosiers. Porter is an active member of his church as well as in Financial Center’s employee volunteer program.
As Crash the GAC enters its fifth year, Crashers now attend conferences and meet-ups all over the credit union and cooperative systems. Crash events provide young, motivated credit union employees with opportunities to take part in top industry events that they might not otherwise be able to attend. In addition to the core schedule of GAC events, Crashers will attend exclusive speaker sessions and explore opportunities for young adults to help promote credit unions locally and nationally.
Crash the GAC is put on by CUNA and The Cooperative Trust, in association with state credit union leagues, and sponsored by CUNA Mutual Group. Learn more about CUNA GAC here. Stay informed on Crash opportunities at trust.coop.
