Scholarships available for the 2017 Principles and Philosophy Conference

The 2017 Principles and Philosophy Conference is a few months away, and scholarship applications are now being accepted! The eighth annual event takes place October 24-26 at the White Oak Conference Center near Winnsboro, SC. 

Scholarships include meals, two nights of lodging and all conference materials -- a $650 value! The scholarships are available to staff and volunteers at credit unions of $125 million in assets and below. 

"Scholarships serve a twofold purpose for the event," shared Jeff Hardin, the League's director of cooperative initiatives. "They provide an opportunity for credit unions to attend that otherwise would not be able to, of course. The biggest benefit, however, is that having the perspectives of a diverse group of credit unions at the table enriches the overall conference experience for everyone." 

The Principles and Philosophy Conference is a deep dive into the cooperative business model and the key principles that underpin it. First developed in Rochdale, England in 1844 by 28 people who started a food store, the Seven Cooperative Principles provided a spark for the development and spread of the cooperative business model worldwide.
