Credit Union Youth Bursary Information

2017 Youth Director Bursary Information

For the third consecutive year, the DF Executive is offering youth directors of credit union and caisse populaire boards, the chance to attend the entire conference and have their registration fees covered by the DF! This is a unique and awesome opportunity to network with and learn from experienced directors and system leaders and experts. 

The bursary will cover the set 2017 conference registration fee, which includes the sessions, meals and activities outlined in the Conference Rates above. Any additional costs (i.e., travel to/from the conference, overnight accommodations, the dinner banquet, and any food not included with the conference registration fee, is the sole responsibility of the individual and/or his or her affiliated credit union or caisse populaire.

Bursary applicants are required to book thier own accommodations at the venue and are eligible for the group rate that we have set aside for all our delegates this year. Please note that the later you book you rooms, the less chance of getting the group rate! Access the accommodaton page here for more information.
