CU Ambassador Project FAQs

Can I use a past project from Leadership School?

Yes, however, projects completed prior to 2019 will be required to showcase new data and continued progress toward the goal or how the goal was ultimately achieved.

Can more than one person from my credit union participate?

Yes. Anyone who wants to submit a proposal is encouraged to do so, along with a letter of recommendation from their supervisor.

Can we submit a group project?

No, the project research and execution are intended to be independently completed.

What role does my chapter play? Do I have to go through my Chapter Contest?

Chapters will still host the initial entry to the contest. Chapters will select judges as they previously did for the speeches and will use a rubric to grade the proposals. If a chapter does not host a contest or if your chapter is not active, the chapter level can be bypassed.

How long should the proposal be?

A maximum of one page. 

Do I have to complete the project before the spring deadline?

No, but it needs to be at least 60% completed by the submission date.

Is there a specific topic my project should be about?

No, as long as it benefits your credit union, department/team, or the movement as a whole.

Is there a fee to participate?

No, but only CrossState Credit Union Association members are eligible.

I was selected to present, what costs does CrossState cover?

Event registration and lodging are paid by CrossState. No travel fees will be included.
