LAS VEGAS (6/28/10)--There are several reasons why credit union representatives should attend The 1 CU Conference in Las Vegas July 11-14, according to the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

It is the first time CUNA and WOCCU have joined forces to host the only international conference for credit unions and financial cooperatives worldwide. Credit unions who attend will:
* Hear Bill Cheney speak for the first time as CUNA's new president/CEO. Cheney, who will succeed Dan Mica in the position, begins his term with CUNA on July 5. * Learn from speakers such as author Jim Collins (July 12) and Kevin Carroll (July 14). Collins is author of Good to Great, Built to Last, Beyond Entrepreneurship and other best-selling business books. Carroll is author of Rules of the Red Rubber Ball and a consultant to Nike, Starbucks, Walt Disney, Proctor & Gamble and other Fortune 500 companies. * Participate in more than 50 educational and networking sessions led by dozens of international financial experts, regulators and consultants focused on improving credit union performance. * Meet with 2,200 credit union leaders, and executives and volunteers from 57 countries; * Visit with 170 products and services providers in the exhibit hall; * Rub elbows with other credit union decision makers who are meeting the challenges of spending wisely while growing their membership.
Some of the breakout sessions focusing on hot topics in the movement include:
