Why Attend Directors Conference?

Directors, see if this strikes a chord… 

  • Immerse yourself in a collaborative learning environment with 10 hours of dedicated learning time, and earn up to 12 CPE credits.
  • Highly interactive content that is unique to your role as credit union board member.
  • Part learning, part networking, and part inspiration—get wowed by our expert speakers, pick the brains of your peers, and head home energized with many new ideas to implement.  

CEOs, this’ll be music to your ears… 

  • 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."
