Online registration for World CU Conference opens
MADISON, Wis. (1/14/09)—The World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) has launched online registration for the 2009 World Credit Union Conference in Barcelona, Spain, July 26-29. Participants can register online and secure their hotel accommodations. Use the link to register for pre- and post-conference tours of Barcelona. WOCCU says hotel and tour space are limited. The $100 discount for early registration ends May 20. Returning to Europe for the first time in two years, the 2009 conference is being held in cooperation with the Spanish National Association for Credit Cooperatives (UNACC) and Banco Cooperativo Español, the national wholesale cooperative bank for credit cooperatives. Spain's credit unions--known as rural financial cooperatives--serve more than 10 million clients through 5,000 branches. The conference agenda will feature keynote speakers and educational breakout sessions focusing on four themes that address contemporary challenges to credit unions: relevant topics for developing credit union movements; finance and operations; strategy and leadership; and sustainability. The conference will debut a new event. The Global Women's Leadership Forum--which brings together female credit union CEOs and executives from around the world for an invitation-only peer-learning session. Donors who support the greater Global Women's Leadership Initiative at the $250 level or above will be invited to a special networking reception on July 26, before the Opening Ceremony. Other conference highlights include the Seventh Annual International Regulators' Roundtable and WOCCU's Young Credit Union People Program for attendees under the age of 35.
