As a volunteer, no one is better positioned to affect the future of your credit union than you are.  You have accepted a major responsibility in guiding your credit union.  Ongoing education is important to reach the next level of challenge and opportunity.

This year's conference is scheduled to be held at the Sheraton Music City Hotel in exciting Nashville, TN!  Whether you're just getting started at your credit union, or are a seasoned veteran, our conference offers valuable learning opportunities that will help sharpen your skills and make your leadership role more effective.

The conference is designed to help you understand the changes in the credit union industry and recognize challenges facing your credit union.  We'll discuss the issues that are most important to you.  In addition, you'll have plenty of opportunities to "network" with other volunteers from across the region, ask the burning questions, and discover how you can more effectively serve your credit union and its members.

Includes program materials, Friday evening welcome reception, Saturday and Sunday breakfasts. Saturday Volunteer lunch, and Saturday dinner and entertainment.   Does not include overnight accommodations.
