Are you up for the challenge?

On Thursday, December 7 at 1:00 p.m. the Tarheel Chapter will host the chapter-level CUaware Protégé Competition for eligible credit union professionals, ages 18-35. 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 & Essay are due December 1, 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 Tarheel 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)

Go to carolinasleague.org/protege to download the application and other necessary forms in order to compete.

The winner and two runners-up at the finals in February will receive special benefits including scholarship opportunities at regionally recognized conferences and places on the CUaware Council.
