Crown Prince of Spain to open World CU Conference
MADISON, Wis. (5/18/09)--His Royal Highness The Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbon y Grecia, will welcome attendees of this year's World Credit Union Conference in Barcelona, Spain, July 27 during the Opening General Session. The only son of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, Prince Felipe is the heir apparent to the Spanish throne. He will introduce the Monday keynote speaker, former president of Mexico Vicente Fox. Prince Felipe's international education includes attending high school in Ontario, Canada, and Spanish military, naval and air force academies; receiving an undergraduate in law from Autonomous University, Madrid; and receiving a master's degree in international relations from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. He married Princess Letizia, a journalist, in 2004. Their wedding in Madrid was the capital city's first royal marriage in almost a century. They have two daughters. King Juan Carlos is a direct descendant of European rulers, including Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom through his grandmother, Victoria Eugenie, and Louis XIV of France through the House of Bourbon. The World Credit Union Conference, presented by the World Council of Credit Unions, will be July 26-29 at the Barcelona Convention Centre and will attract credit union leaders from more than 40 countries. The early bird deadline for discounted registration ends Wednesday. For more information, use the link.
