This interactive bootcamp will dive into important conversations for credit union leaders & aspiring leaders. What does it mean to be fluent in co-ops and credit unions? Get comfortable and conversational about the credit union brand. Deepen your pool of responses to the question: “What is the credit union difference?” If you work with staff, members, in marketing or governance, the language we use to talk about our CUs and our priorities impacts everything we do.

4:00pm CST A Question of Relevance: Redefining the Relationship between Youth and Financial Cooperatives
While digital financial services are essential, credit unions can do more to increase their relevance with youth. We can be more intentional. We can invest more. We can be a force for empowerment. We must do more; our future depends upon it.
The great thing is – young people already love us, they just might not know it yet! In this session WYCUP will highlight one of the leading programs for empowering youth through financial cooperatives. Join us an hear how Sicredi in Brazil is successfully applying its cooperative soul to youth empowerment and in the process, redefining the relationship between young people and financial cooperatives.
