Unconference 2023: Viability and Growth

You are invited to a peer-directed unconference to address the changing needs of your members and the economy. What do members need in a changing world and how do we stay viable and relevant? Unconference gives you access to creatively address growth and viability for credit unions with the best people in the industry.

UnConference Explained: 

Unconference is a unique event format that allows for participants to create on-demand, participant-led solutions in a collaborative setting. Unconference (aka Open Space Technology) has been around since 1985 and has been used all over the world with group of 5 to groups of 2000 to address multiple situations. It is a highly participatory process to address just about any issue.

Unconference is an event format that has no set agenda…instead it:

  • allows participants to learn exactly what they feel they need to learn;
  • pairs people with similar desires so that they can learn from each other;
  • allows participants to access on-demand knowledge and problem-solving;
  • participants convene & connect regardless of program-design, geography or job title;
  • allows participants to showcase their own knowledge, ideas, successes & failures
