Scholarship applications are welcomed through September 1 for the 2017 Principles & Philosophy Conference. Applications will be accepted from staff and volunteers in North Carolina and South Carolina at credit unions of $125 million in assets and below.
The conference is a deep dive into the Seven Cooperative Principles of credit unions and cooperatives. Attendees gain an understanding of and embrace the cooperative business model, learn how it is different from for-profit industries like banks, and become advocates for these principles at their credit unions.
The conference takes place October 24-26 at the White Oak Conference Center near Winnsboro, SC. For more information please visit the conference registration page. Scholarship applications should be completed and returned on or before September 1, 2017. A CEO or sponsoring Credit Union Development Educator letter of recommendation is required to apply.
Scholarships include lodging, tuition, meals and all conference materials. You may download the application form here or contact Jeff Hardin with any questions.
