CUNA is now America's Credit Unions.
A stronger voice to advance the credit union industry.
The CUNA Lending Council announces the Next Level Executive Scholarship to allow rising credit union lending leaders the opportunity to attend the 2023 CUNA Lending Council Conference, November 12-15, 2023, in Denver, Colorado.
“I am so proud to be part of the credit union movement and to help our newest leaders stay and grow within the industry by offering 50 scholarships as part of the Next Level Executives program.” Meghin Margel, director consumer lending, BECU in Seattle, Wash., and member of Lending Council Executive Committee.
The Next Level Executive Scholarship aims to encourage emerging talent within credit union lending by connecting them with the resources and peers at the conference and through the Council, resulting in more informed and effective leaders.
The scholarships offer $3,000 towards travel and fees associated with attending the conference. Existing Lending Council members will be given preference, but non-members who are selected will have a membership covered through their scholarship.
Five separate needs-based scholarships for existing Lending Council members from small credit unions will also be granted. To learn more about eligibility, or to view the application, please visit www.cunacouncils.org/lendingconference and click on Scholarships.
“Our hope is that, with this support, we can keep the best and brightest lenders within the credit union industry.” said Ethan Nelson, VP of credit administration at Oregon Community Credit Union and chair of the Lending Council.” The knowledge and connections they can gain at the Conference and by being part of the Lending Council network are invaluable. I look forward to meeting them in November!"
