75th Annual Meeting & Convention
May 20-22, 2022
The Association of Vermont Credit Unions is pleased to announce that, for the first time since 2019, we are returning to an in-person Annual Meeting & Convention in 2022.
For business partners and other vendors interested in exhibiting at this event, materials will be published here the week of January 17th. To join our mailing list and receive this information as soon as it’s published, visit our Communications / Media page and subscribe to our weekly Newslines Express newsletter. The email invitation to exhibit and sponsor will be sent through MailChimp, so please whitelist the address AVCU@vermontcreditunions.coop on your email server to make sure the communication reaches you.
For our member credit unions, the Official Call and attendee registration materials will be emailed to all chief executives the first week of February.
Inquiries about our Annual Meeting & Convention can be emailed to Director of Information Services John Cote: JohnCote@VermontCreditUnions.coop.
Purchasing a station in Friday's Exhibitor Hall is required for anyone other than Vermont credit union employees or volunteers to attend our convention.
For those new to our Annual Meeting, being an exhibitor is the only way to get your company in front of the vast majority of Vermont’s credit union decision makers. CEOs, senior executives, board members, and employees from more than 80% of our credit unions, including all those exceeding $100 million in assets, regularly attend AVCU's largest annual event.
Before submitting your application, be sure to thoroughly read all the policies and requirements of being an exhibitor as outlined in the Information Kit linked above.
The Official Call to our 75th Annual Meeting and the Attendee / Guest Registration Kit will be emailed to CEOs at all Association member credit unions the first week of February. The Registration Kit will also be available for viewing / download here.
In addition to complete details on discounted registration packages for individuals and couples, and a la carte meals and events, the Kit also outlines the available room types in our Jay Peak Resort call-in room block and explains the procedure for booking room reservations.
The call-in room block and online registration for discount packages and a la carte events and meals will open via Eventbrite during that same first week of February.
