NCBA Co-op Trust create Crash NCBA scholarship
WASHINGTON (8/10/12)--The National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) has partnered with The Cooperative Trust to create a "Crash NCBA" scholarship event, aimed at drawing young cooperative employees to the NCBA's annual meeting in Seattle, Oct. 2-5.

The Cooperative Trust was formed to give young credit union employees the chance to attend meetings such as the Credit Union National Association's Government Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., and the World Council of Credit Unions' conference.

With the addition of "Crash NCBA," the Cooperative Trust focuses on all cooperative businesses and organizations, not just credit unions, for the first time.

The "Crash NCBA" event will coincide with the 2012 International Year of the Cooperative, a year-long event to highlight the work and strides of cooperative businesses worldwide.

"This is a very special event for us," Brent Dixon, founder of The Cooperative Trust, said of the wider-reaching scholarship event. "We're reaching out to include more co-ops and, hopefully, encourage more young people to get involved and learn from one another. And, as always, we're hoping to have a lot of fun with our 'Crashers.'"

Scholarships are based on merit and will be awarded to 15 participants based on the strength of their entry forms and essays. Interested candidates under the age of 30 can visit the NCBA website to apply for a scholarship slot before Aug. 23. Use the link.

Candidates accepted into the program will be given access to the entire conference, and separate breakout sessions with thought-leaders in the cooperative business space. The NCBA is sponsoring all 15 slots.
