Registration is now open for the 2024 World Credit Union Conference, cohosted by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The conference will be held at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, MA, July 21 – 24, 2024.
The largest global credit union event of the year, the conference promises to be a game-changer. It will feature top-notch speakers, cutting-edge insights and solutions, and unmatched networking opportunities. The event typically attracts thousands of credit union professionals from more than 60 countries.
"Our teams have been hard at work to bring the industry together for an event of this magnitude, and we couldn't be more excited," says Marlo Foltz, vice president of blended learning at CUNA. "Our aim is to provide a platform that addresses the current challenges of our industry head-on—through a global lens—and sets the tone for what's to come. We're gathering the brightest minds and most influential voices around the world to deliver an exceptional experience."
"Each year, the World Credit Union Conference is a testament to our dedication to fostering knowledge exchange and professional growth through networking opportunities and education on a wide range of topics designed for specific audiences, including women and youth. It also helps credit union leaders learn about the latest innovations and solutions from industry thought leaders, fintechs, and other providers that enable them to stay competitive in the increasingly diverse world of global financial services,” said Elissa McCarter LaBorde, WOCCU President and CEO.
This registration announcement coincides with the open voting period for the proposed merger of Credit Union National Association (CUNA) with the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU). Should the merger take place, World Credit Union Conference will be hosted by the combined entity, America’s Credit Unions, where all member credit unions will have the opportunity to participate. More information will be provided in due course.
