Why You Should Attend:

Directors—Why Should You Attend?  

  • Strong learning environment and collaboration with 10 hours of dedicated learning time, and up to 12 CPE credits.
  • Highly interactive content that is unique to your role as credit union board member.
  • Directors Conference is part learning, part networking, and part inspiration—you’ll head home energized with many new ideas to implement.  

CEOs—Why Send Your Directors?  

  • Your directors will learn governance best practices and key regulatory and fiduciary issues that will help keep your board—and your credit union—strong.
  • Networking is an important part of this conference; your directors will form bonds with fellow board members they can reach out to once they are home.     
  • Conference speakers will provide cross-industry perspectives that can be invaluable in your boardroom.

"Very good conference; lots of diverse topics, made you think about the future. Excellent time to network and discuss similar and different ways for boards to function."
