"This conference helped give me a better wealth of knowledge and understanding of credit unions, the history and our purpose. I have a clearer understanding of our principles and learned valuable information that I am able to bring back to my credit union. I am super fired up and happy to have been a part of the experience." -- 2016 conference attendee

Scholarship applications for the 2017 Principles & Philosophy Conference are due by Friday, September 1. The scholarships include all on-site expenses, including meals, lodging and conference materials. Travel and other incidental expenses are the responsibility of the credit union or scholarship recipient. 

The conference takes place October 24-26 at the White Oak Conference Center near Winnsboro, SC. Now in its eighth year, the conference is a deep dive into the cooperative business model and the seven principles that differentiate credit unions and other co-ops in the marketplace. 

In addition to the operating principles, attendees learn the social purpose of co-ops and credit unions. Participants leave with a greater understanding of just how special credit unions are, and how the Seven Cooperative Principles are at heart good business practices.


Scholarship criteria are as follows: 

  • Open to staff and volunteers at credit unions of $125 million and under assets;
  • Recommendation letter or email from a CUDE or CEO required;
  • Must be submitted for consideration by September 1, 2017.
