Combined CUNA WOCCU conference to double the impact
MADISON, Wis. and WASHINGTON (9/29/09)--The 1 Credit Union Conference--next year's combination of America's Credit Union Conference and Expo with the World Credit Union Conference--will provide a concentrated use of resources to help credit unions nationwide and worldwide with strategies for the challenges they face. The 1 Credit Union Conference--one of the industry's largest conferences--is slated for July 11-14 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. Its theme: One world, one event. Its sponsors: the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the World Credit Union Council (WOCCU). CUNA expects more than 2,500 attendees from 60 countries at the global event. By budgeting now, attendees can take advantage of various discounts on early bird registration discounts before May 20, 2010. Also, special discounts are available for attendees from small credit unions under $35 million in assets, from developing countries, from the younger-than-35 set, and more. The single professional development investment in attending will yield greater benefits, according to CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. He noted that challenging times have meant that education and development dollars "need to bring a greater return than they ever have in the past. Our combined conference provides the best and most economical opportunity we can offer for all of us to find the resources we need to help our credit unions survive and thrive. The combination is unprecedented. It also marks the first time the World Credit Union Conference has met in the U.S. in more than a decade, said Pete Crear, WOCCU president/CEO.
