Are you up for the challenge?

On October 24, 2017 at  6:00 pm the Columbia Chapter will host the chapter-level CUaware Protégé Competition for eligible credit union professionals, ages 18-35 at Seawells. 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. The deadline to submit your application and essay to the chapter is  Monday, September 11, 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 Columbia 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)
