League Champion Program

LCP Logo

The League Champion Program is a year-long commitment (February 2023-February 2024) that brings together credit union professionals from across the state to promote The Wisconsin Credit Union League's events. This program is geared towards individuals who are eager to become more involved, grow professionally, network, and be rewarded for it! Check out this article announcing the program.

How Does This Program Work? Like many programs similar to ours, we ask that our champions promote The League's events on LinkedIn. Champions will promote before and during/after events, along with a few other promotional activities to help drum up excitement. For their efforts, they will receive discounts on registration fees and the Top Champion(s) will receive expenses paid (up to $500) to an event of their choosing in the following season. 

Who Can Become a League Champion? League Champions are selected through an annual application process. This program is a great fit for individuals who attend League events regularly and are savvy on social media. We welcome anyone to apply!
