MADISON, Wis. -- World Council of Credit Unions is now accepting online registrations for the 2008 World Credit Union Conference scheduled to take place in Hong Kong from July 13-16.
Participants can register online and reserve hotel accommodations at: www.woccu.org/hongkong08.
The conference, co-hosted by the Credit Union League of Hong Kong and in cooperation with the Association of Asian Confederation of Credit Unions, marks the first time that WOCCU has brought the World Credit Union Conference to Asia.
Several of this year's sessions will feature a new interactive format, promoting participant discussions that allow a wider perspective on issues facing credit unions globally.
As in years past, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in local credit union visits and see first-hand how credit unions in Hong Kong operate.
The conference will also include WOCCU's Young Credit Union People Program, which offers select events, including a networking session, for attendees under the age of 35.
Attendees wishing to enhance their Asian experience can participate in the optional pre-conference tour to Beijing, China from July 9-12 and post-conference tour to Bangkok, Thailand from July 17-20.
The excursions are in addition to companion tours that will take place during the conference for partners and families of attendees. The companion tours include day trips to nearby Macau and to Shenzhen on Mainland China.
Space is limited and the deadline for a discounted early registration rate is May 9.
