MADISON, Wis.—The "early bird" deadline for World Council of Credit Union's (WOCCU's) 2008 World Credit Union Conference in Hong Kong, scheduled for July 13-16, is rapidly approaching. Plan to register on or before May 9, 2008 to take advantage of discounted registration fees. Online registration is available at www.woccu.org/hongkong08.


Hosted in Asia for the first time in more than 30 years, the World Credit Union Conference will convene at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with credit union peers from around the world, learn best practices from industry leaders and enjoy exciting social events and activities, including a special reception for WOCCU Supporters. Visits to local credit unions will offer insights on ways financial cooperatives compete in other markets and allow participants to gain new perspectives on better serving their members.

The impressive roster of speakers for this year's conference includes former U.S. Senator Paul Sarbanes, who will share his perspective on Sarbanes-Oxley legislation and its role in promoting good governance and corporate responsibility. Madam Wu Xiaoling, former deputy governor of the People's Bank of China, and Dr. Anna Tibaijuka, United Nations Under-Secretary-General & Executive Director of UN-HABITAT, will also deliver keynote addresses.

Space is limited but still available on the pre-conference tour to Beijing, China, and post-conference tour to Bangkok, Thailand. For attendees participating in the companion program, day tours in and around Hong Kong will offer opportunities to explore the local sights and experience local culture.

Applications are still being accepted for WOCCU's Young Credit Union People (WYCUP) Program, which offers nominees under the age of 35 the chance to compete for a scholarship to next year's World Credit Union Conference. To download an application for WYCUP, visit www.woccu.org/wycup.
