Maine League, CUs To Sponsor World Acadian Congress
PORTLAND, Maine (8/19/13)--The Maine Credit Union League Wednesday announced its sponsorship of the 2014 World Acadian Congress.

The sponsorship includes a $75,000 financial and in-kind commitment from Maine credit unions, including a check for $12,500 presented by league president John Murphy to the congress Wednesday (Weekly Update Aug. 16).

The event was attended by Maine league representatives, the Aroostook Chapter of CUs and representatives and organizers of the World Acadian Congress, which will take place in Aroostook County, Maine; northwestern New Brunswick, Canada; and southeastern Quebec, Canada in 2014.
Murphy recognized the historical relationship between the Acadian culture and Maine's credit unions. "Many Maine credit unions can trace their roots back to this heritage and our partnership reinforces our history," Murphy said.

The 17-day congress, which will be held Aug. 8-24, 2014, is expected to attract an estimated 50,000 visitors to the U.S. and Canada. The congress is held every five years.

In December, Maine credit unions became the exclusive retail distributor of state World Acadian Congress license plates, with $1 from each plate sold going to the Maine credit unions' Campaign for Ending Hunger.
