Session Descriptions


The Mississippi River was literally Chad Pregracke's backyard while growing up near East Moline, IL. The son of educators and river enthusiasts, KeeKee and Gary Pregracke, Chad and his older brother, Brent, spent the majority of their time on, in, and around the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers.

During his summer breaks Chad worked on the river–primarily as a commercial shell diver for the cultured pearl industry, but also as a commercial fisherman and barge hand. Typically working miles away from home, he camped on the islands and shorelines of the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers to save money and fuel. It was during this time that Chad began to realize how neglected the rivers were, with the unsightly and toxic accumulation of trash along their banks.

One river, one piece of garbage at a time.



        • NAMED TOP 10 CNN HERO

Chad Pregracke is a modern day leader and proof that one person can make a difference. What started as one man's crusade at age 23 to clean up the Mississippi River, has evolved into a cultural movement that had resulted in over 8 million pounds of garbage being cleaned out of America's rivers. The vision and leadership skills that Chad possesses have inspired more than 70,000 people to volunteer their time and resources.

Exhibitors fall into one of these three (3) categories:

1.     League affiliates

2.     KYCUL Services business partners and endorsed vendors, and

3.     Non-endorsed vendors.

Business partners and endorsed vendors provide a service or product which has been reviewed by KYCUL Services and which, based upon review and analysis, is believed to be of a quality nature and worthy of endorsement.  Affiliates, business partners and endorsed vendors are clearly identified by signs at their exhibit booths.

The products and services of non-endorsed vendors have not been reviewed or analyzed and KYCUL Services and the League make no representations with regard to their quality.

We encourage credit unions to investigate non-endorsed vendors thoroughly before purchasing their products and services.
