credit unions have sponsored staff development and graduate credit
costs for teachers who attend the conference, which has been much
appreciated by those recipients.
Cost of the credit ranges from $65 to $130, depending on which
institution the teacher is seeking the credit.
Credit unions also sponsor a teacher's cost to attend the
conference for $150. That covers both the conference registration
and hotel accommodations. Also, credit unions are invited to attend
an Industry luncheon on July 22 at the conference following a
keynote presentation from J. Barry Griswell, president of the
Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines and former CEO of
Principal Financial Group.
