The younger generations have never been more important to credit unions today. This industry needs a "member succession plan" to continue its growth well into the future -- which is why organizations like The Cooperative Trust must flourish.
To get an inside look at The Cooperative Trust and the many changes that will be occurring this year, we invited its high-energy leader Lauren Culp on the show. Lauren shares with us what the impending "The Cooperative Trust 3.0" will look like in the coming months, along with the latest Crasher plans for 2018 -- which includes the upcoming GAC, where there will be a record-breaking 80 Crashers.
So, please, if you see these super eager, future leaders of our industry at one our industry's conferences this year, take a few minutes and talk to them, encourage them, help them. It could mean a huge difference in their credit union careers.
That said, enjoy our conversation with Lauren -- and support this group. They are the future of our industry.
