Deadline Fast Approaching for Marketing and Business Development Conference Grants
Tuesday, July 28, 2015 6:35 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union League’s Marketing and Business Development Council will be awarding grants to credit union professionals to attend the 2015 Marketing and Business Development Conference Oct. 7–9, 2015 at the Isla Grande Resort in South Padre Island, Texas.

Who May Apply
Cornerstone Credit Union League affiliated credit unions in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas may apply for scholarship assistance for employees or volunteers whose role includes marketing, public relations, and/or business development responsibilities. Recipients must be members of the Marketing and Business Development Council (council dues are $25 per calendar year; a portion of the grant may be used to satisfy this requirement).

Recipient Expectations
Grant recipients will be expected to act as Council correspondents during the conference. Duties will include using multiple channels including, but not limited to, social media (including the Marketing Council's Facebook page), print, verbal, and video to promote the conference experience prior to and after the event, and to report on conference happenings—for instance, Pinnacle Award winners, conference speakers and sessions, the experiences of fellow attendees—during the event. 

Grant Limitations
Credit unions may receive only one grant. Grant funds may be used to offset the following costs to attend the conference: registration, Marketing and Business Development Council dues, travel, housing, and meals. The award is not meant to offset all expenses. Each grant will not exceed $1,000. Four grants will be awarded. One grant each to eligible applicants from Arkansas and Oklahoma and two grants to eligible applicants from Texas. Additional grants may be awarded if funds are available.

Grant Oversight
The Education and Mentoring Committee of the Marketing and Business Development Council shall appoint a team to oversee the application review and decision-making processes of this grant program. The conclusions of the team shall be final and binding. Grant team members shall not be members of the Marketing and Business Development Council.
