Early bird deadline looms for World CU Conference
MADISON, Wis. (4/27/12)--The "early bird" deadline for World Council of Credit Unions' (WOCCU) 2012 World Credit Union Conference in Gdańsk, Poland, July 15-18 is looming. On May 10, the registration fee will increase to $200 per attendee.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to connect with peers from around the world; hear from leading business minds Youngme Moon, Harvard University professor, and mobile banking guru Brett King, who are driving change in and outside the credit union industry; and take in sightseeing tours highlighting the historical significance of Gdańsk.

"This summer we also have the pleasure of joining Poland's credit unions, Spoldzielcze kasy oszczędnościowo-kredytowe or better known as SKOKs, in celebrating their 20th anniversary," said Brian Branch, WOCCU president/CEO. "What started as a small grassroots effort has grown to become one of the most successful and respected credit union systems in the world, and attendees will have the chance to see this amazing transformation firsthand and celebrate its success."

Also, this year's conference features local credit union visits, breakout sessions featuring field-tested solutions, The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions' charity golf tournament, the third annual Global Women's Leadership Forum and opportunities to network and build a strong professional network that will continue after attendees leave Gdańsk.

A companion program and sightseeing tours also are scheduled for guests to join in this year's activities, and spaces are still available on the pre-tour, July 10-14, from Kraków to Gdańsk and the post-tour, which will head to St. Petersburg, Russia, July 19-22, after the conference. Early registration is recommended.

Register on or before May 10 to take advantage of discounted registration fees. For more information about the conference and to register for the event, use the link.
