Each year, hundreds of credit union leaders gather at The Wisconsin Credit Union League’s Annual Convention to address the industry’s top issues and find pathways for solving them. Among the issues credit unions face, young adult outreach and succession planning are among the highest priority.
In an effort to engage and help retain our industry’s young leaders, The YP Network and Wisconsin Credit Union League are offering two discounted pathways for young professionals – 35 years and younger – to attend the 2014 League Annual Convention, May 7-10 in Milwaukee:
For the fourth year in a row, The League will host a “Crash the Convention” event, which will allow up to 20 young credit union employees to attend The Wisconsin Credit Union League’s Annual Convention and take part in special sessions with top industry leaders and featured Convention speakers.
Convention registration, hotel and many meal costs are covered for Crashers. So beyond travel expenses and a few meals, there is little cost to the credit union, thanks to generous sponsorship from The W.C.U.L. Services Corp and CUNA Mutual Group.
Ready to Crash? YPs, ages 35 years and younger, should:
- Obtain manager’s approval
- Complete and submit this application by Monday, April 14.
- Be prepared to not just Crash, but also motivated to make an impact when they return to their credit union afterwards.
2. Use the discounted YP registration rate
All credit union employees 35 years and younger will have the chance to attend the Annual Convention at the discounted rate of $119. In addition to the basic Convention schedule, they will also be invited to attend any special YP sessions at Convention.
Hope to see many of you there! If you have any questions about to Crash or other YP events at Convention, shoot me an email.
