Are you a young credit union professional or volunteer under 40 years of age attending the 2014 World Credit Union Conference in Gold Coast, Australia?

Before the conference begins, we invite you to be part of a series of activities, at no extra cost, especially designed for the young crowd!

Share your own experiences with young credit union leaders from all over the world and learn about the phenomenal work they are doing. At the end of the conference, five individuals will be awarded an all-expenses-paid scholarship to attend the 2015 World Credit Union Conference in Denver, Colorado, USA.
