About CUsTogether Conferences
CUsTogether Conferences are designed to further the credit union movement in North and South Carolina, bringing together staff members, senior managers, and volunteers officials to learn, grow and fellowship.
Program Sponsor: Nick Wodogaza, CUDE
As a part of the Carolinas credit union movement for over 41 years, Nick believes in the great power of credit unions in working cooperatively and works to promote opportunities to bring credit union people together. He serves as President & CEO of Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union, retiring from this role on January 31, 2023. With both the CUsTogether Employees Conference and the CUsTogether Leadership Conference his goal is to promote education and networking between credit union volunteers, senior managers and staff members. He hopes to provide a venue to encourage professional growth and cooperation for credit unions across the Carolinas. Nick is proud to recognize registration fees exceeding direct costs are donated to the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, with participating credit unions and program leaders recognized as the contributors. Since the Conferences began in 2019, over $56 thousand has been donated to the Foundation!
In 2020 Nick became a Credit Union Development Educator. The Credit Union Development Education (CUDE) Program is a signature program of the National Credit Union Foundation. The mission of the CUDE Program is to help established and emerging leaders within the credit union movement understand and leverage credit unions' unique business model to serve members and our communities in new and better ways. Development Education is a process dedicated to understanding fundamental barriers that prevent the prosperity of people and communities across the globe.
