COLUMBIA, S.C. (3/30/12)--Four South Carolina regional credit union chapters have selected candidates for the inaugural South Carolina Credit Union League  (SCCUL) Palmetto Protégé Competition, which recognizes young professionals and the opportunities credit unions provide them.

The Palmetto Protégé will serve as statewide leader of the league's Young Professional Initiative (YPI) and peer advocate for credit unions. Responsibilities coordinated by the league include:

  • Participation in the league's Leadership Conference as a secondary presenter and YPI advocate;
