Four Representatives From Each Chapter to Attend AC&E for Free
Chairpersons of MCUL & Affiliates chapters have until April 25 to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of up to four eligible participants from their chapter who have been selected to receive complimentary admission to the League's 2013 Annual Convention and Exposition, taking place May 16-18 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.
To qualify, participants must have never attended the AC&E in the past, thus providing a tremendous opportunity for up-and-coming credit union employees and volunteers to benefit from professional development. The special offer is also an ideal way for seasoned-professionals from each chapter to attend the conference and serve as a mentor to a first-time attendee from their region.
The invitations for four first-time attendees from each chapter to attend for free has been placed in the care of each chapter's chairperson, allowing them to decide the best way to select participants to go to this amazing conference.
The Grand River, Huron Valley, Metro West and UP chapters have already submitted the names of their delegates to attend, including Marie Molise, branch administrator from SIR Federal Credit Union. Molise says she is "looking forward to the large number of education breakout sessions" taking place at this year's AC&E.
"The educational sessions benefit both the credit union management and board of directors," Molise stated. "There are also lots of opportunities to network with other credit union employees. Sharing ideas and experiences with one another is another great way to expand your education."
Each attendee will receive complimentary full-conference registration, a $339 value. The free registration option does not include hotel accommodations, parking, travel costs or additional meals beyond those included in registration.
Once each chapter has identified four qualified delegates to attend, the chapter chair should forward the individual’s names, along with their titles, email address and credit union names to Char Turowski at the email address above. Attendees may then register online here
and conference fees will be adjusted prior to invoicing. Other restrictions apply; complete details have been forwarded to each chapter's chairperson and vice chairperson.
The AC&E is packed with training and networking opportunities and features an exposition with over 100 exhibitors. To view the full agenda and information about keynote presentations, general sessions and the amazing line-up of speakers, click here.
