Golfers, sponsors welcome for Convention golf tournament

One of the most popular Convention traditions is the CUNA Mutual Group Golf Tournament to benefit the New York Credit Union Foundation (NYCUF). This year's tournament will be held on the beautiful Sagamore Golf Course, with two days of play on June 13 and 15.

By sponsoring the tournament and/or registering to play, credit unions can help raise valuable funds for NYCUF.

Golfer registration: Golfers may choose to play one or both days in the tournament. Tee times will be assigned for June 13, and a shotgun start will be used June 15. Payment and registration must be received by May 17. For details and registration, visit the Convention website.

The Best Companies to Work for in New York State program is a partnership by New York's Human Resource Management, Journal Multimedia Corp. and the Business Council of New York.
