Two exciting and educational events are planned for Raleigh in August. The African American Credit Union Coalition will hold its Annual Conference at the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel August 8-11. During this event a group of volunteers from the conference, as well as Raleigh area credit unions, will host a Reality Fair event on August 9 from 9:00 am until Noon.
Registration for the Annual Conference is now open, with a discounted hotel room rate available through July 11. Full details and registration links may be found on the AACUC web site's event page. Local Government FCU is serving as the host credit union for the event as well as a Platinum Sponsor. The Carolinas Credit Union League is also a sponsor of the 19th Annual Conference.
Details of the Reality Fair event are still in process. The Reality Fair, which educates high school aged students about the real life money and budget decisions they will be making in their adult years, relies on volunteer support from annual conference attendees and credit union staff from the Raleigh-Durham area. This is the fifth year a Reality Fair simulation has been presented as part of the AACUC Annual Conference.
If you are interested in attending the Annual Conference, please visit the AACUC web site. To volunteer for the Reality Fair event scheduled from 9 am - Noon on Wednesday, August 9, please contact Jeff Hardin (919-457-9063).
