CU System brief (06/01/2009)
* COLUMBIA, S.C. (6/2/09)--The National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) has instituted a referral incentive for the NYIB Conference Aug. 3-6 in Tempe, Ariz. "We are asking that people share information on the conference with peers--credit union pros, cooperative extension agents and the like--while asking that any who decide to register enter at registration the name of the person who referred them," said NYIB Chairman Brandon Pugh. Each referral constitutes a separate entry in a random drawing for a complimentary registration. Also, the person who refers the most people will receive a complimentary registration. "Because we are a volunteer organization of peers without a significant budget for outreach, word-of-mouth is a necessary tool for us to bring more people together, whether at the conference or in sharing through our listserv and the resource pages on our website." The registration page has optional fields for "Referred by name" and "Referred by CU/organization." Any credit union that registers more than one person pays $100 less for each additional participant, Pugh told News Now
