ONTARIO, Calif. (7/29/10)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues’ annual Shapiro Summit attracted more than 50 credit union leaders from the two states Friday and Saturday. The summit provided a networking and learning forum for small asset-sized credit union members of the leagues. The event was held at the leagues’ offices in Ontario, Calif. “It was a great event; one that offered crucial survival tips and growth strategies participants could take back and implement at their credit unions,” said Cathy Arra, staff liaison to the leagues’ Shapiro Advisory Committee, which hosted the event. Participants took in presentations by credit union leaders and league representatives, including interim league President/CEO David Chatfield and California League Board Chairman Jeff York, CEO of CoastHills FCU, Lompoc, Calif. “Smaller credit unions are special, have special needs, and need to continue maintaining their independence,” Chatfield said. “This is a strange time, and we’ve got some big challenges ahead. But with your support, we’re moving ahead.” Jon Hernandez--CEO of CalCom FCU, City of Downey FCU, and Mattel FCU--moderated a panel presentation on “Taking the Bullets Out of the Regulator’s Gun.” Panelists included Eric Bruen, CEO of Desert Valleys FCU, Ridgecrest, Calif; Diana Michaels, CEO of Western Healthcare FCU, Concord, Calif.; and Linda White, CEO of United Health CU, Burlingame, Calif. Other presenters included executive leadership coach Larry Gassin and Pat Neighbors, strategic development officer with the Sacramento, Calif.-based The Golden 1 CU. The leagues’ Shapiro group is a cooperative effort to pool the resources of the Nevada-California credit union community to help small credit unions operate efficiently and effectively. The group consists of credit unions with $42 million or less in assets.
