Speed networking a new feature at Ohio leagues ZENITH08
DUBLIN, Ohio (4/23/08)--Speed networking will debut at the Ohio Credit Union League’s convention, ZENITH08, Thursday and Friday. Speed networking is an opportunity for credit unions of similar asset sizes to discuss issues in a facilitated, one-on-one setting. Similar to speed dating, the time-controlled format opens the door to further dialogue and promotes sharing of success stories and best practices, the league said. A new consumer focus group that analyzes what Ohioans think about credit unions also will be conducted. ZENITH08 is the final destination of the 2008 Credit Unions for Kids: Marching Miles for Miracle Kids, a fundraiser for nine children’s hospitals in Ohio. State Gov. Ted Strickland will welcome the marchers to ZENITH08 after their 19-day trip from Toledo to Columbus. Former National Wegner Memorial Award winner Carol Schillios and Paul Hazen, president/CEO of the National Cooperative Business Association, will address attendees on Friday. Convention topics include enhancing technology for member services, benefits and drawbacks of mergers, greening operations, tapping key members and capitalization. Attendees also will view a live taping of the Home and Family Finance Radio Show, which airs weekly. About 700 credit union leaders and 300 exhibitors are expected to attend.
