ALBANY, N.Y. (5/24/13)--The Credit Union Association of New York's 2013 Annual Meeting and Convention will feature three keynote speakers, led by nationally renowned film inspiration Coach Ken Carter, June 13-16 at Lake George, N.Y.
Carter, an author, educator and the inspiration for the film "Coach Carter" featuring Samuel L. Jackson, will challenge attendees to reach beyond the average to true greatness during his presentation, "The Average Is Not Good Enough."
The gathering will feature two other keynote presenters, Mike Schenk, vice president of economics & statistics at the Credit Union National Association, and Dr. Lance Secretan, an award-winning leadership speaker, professor and author.
Schenk will share insights on how shifts created by the recent fiscal crisis will impact credit unions throughout 2013. Secretan will explore what makes a great leader, and how leaders inspire and change the world.
In 1999, basketball coach Carter made history at California's Richmond High School by locking his undefeated team out of the gym for failing to honor their player contracts and academic requirements. Within two years, he single-handedly transformed the school and the team, motivating his players to pursue excellence both on and off the court. His story inspired the nation and was immortalized in the popular 2005 film "Coach Carter."
Secretan is an advocate for the integration of corporate life and spiritual integrity. Secretan is the former CEO of a Fortune 100 company, a university professor, an award-winning columnist and author of 15 leadership books that emphasize the connection between high performance and the heart, mind and soul.
