Latino CU Conference to be held with CUNAs ACUC
MADISON, Wis. (4/6/12)--The Network of Latino Credit Unions & Professionals' (NLCUP) Seventh Latino Credit Union Conference will be held in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2012 America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC).

The NLCUP conference will take place, June 15-17 in San Diego, immediately before the ACUC, June 17-20. Conference information and registration can be found at acuc.cuna.org under preconference events. To encourage communication and networking between the two conferences, NLCUP conference attendees will receive a $200 discount off ACUC registration.

"Our goal is to help credit union leaders connect with the greater Latino community and raise awareness amongst the credit union community of the incredible opportunities that exist in serving the Hispanic market," said Maria Martinez, NLCUP chairman. "The momentum-driving content and leadership focus of ACUC is a perfect match with our vision for a more vibrant Latino presence in credit union movement."

NLCUP was created to expand the market share of credit unions serving Latino communities and to increase Latinos' representation and participation in the credit union movement.

The NLCUP conference is designed to help Latino credit union professionals gain exposure in the larger credit union movement and forge connections among fellow Latino credit union leaders. This year's conference theme, "Creating Opportunity ~ Creando Oportunidad," will feature journalist, author and performer Ruben Martinez and nationally syndicated journalist Ruben Navarette Jr. In addition, the conference will offer workshops and events in partnership with major system players.

"CUNA is committed to enriching our credit unions' relationships with Latino professionals and the larger Hispanic community," said Bill Cheney, CUNA president/CEO. "We are delighted that this year's NLCUP meeting is co-located with ACUC, and I expect there to be powerful synergies between the two events. This is a great opportunity for our two organizations to strengthen and grow the credit union industry."

Keynoting this year's ACUC in San Diego are business innovator and author Tom Peters; USAF pilot and philanthropist Major Dan Rooney; science-based marketer Sally Hogshead; bestselling business, technology and media author Chris Brogan; and a surprise keynoter, to be announced soon.
