CUNA and the Network of Latino Credit Unions & Professionals (NLCUP) announce that the NLCUP 7th Latino Credit Union Conference will be held in conjunction with CUNA’s 2012 America’s Credit Union Conference (ACUC).

The NLCUP conference will take place, June 15-17 in San Diego, immediately before the ACUC. Conference and registration information and registration can be found under preconference events.

To encourage communication and networking between the two conferences, NLCUP conference attendees will receive a $200 discount off of ACUC registration.

“We are very excited to be holding our annual conference in conjunction with ACUC,” said Maria Martinez, NLCUP Chairman. “Our goal is to help credit union leaders connect with the greater Latino community and raise awareness amongst the credit union community of the incredible opportunities that exist in serving the Hispanic market. The momentum-driving content and leadership focus of ACUC is a perfect match with our vision for a more vibrant Latino presence in credit union movement.”

NLCUP was created to expand the market share of credit unions serving Latino communities, as well as increase the representation and participation of Latinos in the credit union movement. The NLCUP conference is designed to help Latino credit union professionals gain exposure in the larger credit union movement and forge connections between fellow Latino credit union leaders.

This year’s conference theme, “Creating Opportunity ~ Creando Oportunidad,” will feature renowned journalist, author and performer Ruben Martinez and high-profile, nationally syndicated journalist Ruben Navarette, Jr.

The conference will also offer constructive workshops and events in partnership with major system players.

“CUNA is committed to enriching our credit unions’ relationships with Latino professionals and the larger Hispanic community,” stated CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney. “We are delighted that this year’s NLCUP meeting is co-located with ACUC, and I expect there to be powerful synergies between the two events. This is a great opportunity for our two organizations to strengthen and grow the credit union industry.”

ACUC connects progressive credit union leaders with like-minded business experts and action-inspiring ideas. Keynoting this year’s event in San Diego are business innovator and renowned author Tom Peters, USAF pilot and philanthropist Major Dan Rooney, science-based marketer Sally Hogshead, bestselling business, technology, and media author Chris Brogan, and a surprise fifth keynoter to be announced soon.
