COLUMBIA, S.C., and RALEIGH, N.C. (8/27/14)--The six regional chapters of the Carolinas Credit Union League (CCUL) selected their candidates for the inaugural CUaware Protege Competition.
"This is our first year of the expanded two-state program, formerly known as the Palmetto Protege Competition in South Carolina," said league President/CEO John Radebaugh. "It's encouraging to see a matched enthusiasm from credit union chapters in both states, and I look forward to the continued growth of this competition."
Each candidate completed a standardized exam and will give a presentation from a list of league-approved topics such as credit union philosophy, economics, viability, activism and promotion.
The six finalists will vie to be the dual-state Protégé representative at the CCUL Leadership Conference in Pinehurst, N.C., Sept. 5.
This year's chapter winners are:
The protege will serve on the CUaware Leadership Council, and the winner and two runners-up will be awarded a choice of professional development scholarships.
