Your Directors


Beautiful Hawaii

Join us for Directors Conference!

This must-attend event for credit union directors provides you and your colleagues an in-depth look at relevant governance and strategy issues affecting your board, credit union, and the movement as a whole.
This remains a time of constant change. You will be able to pick the brains of others and gain a deeper and broader understanding of the governance challenges we all face with content uniquely relevant to your role as a credit union director.

Topics Covered Will Include:

  • Governance and Leadership
  • Strategy
  • Innovation and Change 
  • And more! 

Bring your entire board!

You will all learn together, network together and be on the same page back at your credit union. We will even help you arrange a board meeting while you are at Directors Conference. Contact us at for details.

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."
