Piedmont Chapter Seeks CU Candidates for the 2017-18 CUaware Protégé Competition
Are you up for the challenge?
On January 4, 2018 at 6:30 pm the Piedmont Chapter will host the chapter-level CUaware Protégé Competition for eligible credit union professionals, ages 18-35 at Truliant Federal Credit Union located in The Rotunda Building, 4201 Congress Street, Suite 152, Charlotte, NC 28209. Each credit union is encouraged to select one candidate to represent them in the chapter-level competition.
Judging will be based on a standard application essay and a five-minute oral presentation. Candidates will have a wide range of speech topic choices available.
Application and essay are due to the chapter by December 15, 2017.
Once a chapter winner is determined, he or she will move on to the finals at Carolinas Credit Union Connect in Charlotte, NC (February 1-2, 2018), where all finalists will make their presentations and complete a brief exam testing their credit union knowledge.
The Piedmont Chapter will cover the following expenses for the chapter-level CUaware Protégé attending the finals:
- Conference registration;
- Hotel accommodations; and
- Meals and mileage/gas reimbursement (or stipend)
