The 1 CU Conference sees surge in registrations
MADISON, Wis. (5/27/10)--In spite of residual economic challenges for credit unions in the U.S. and abroad, last week’s early bird deadline for The 1 Credit Union Conference spurred a flood of registrations for the July 11-14 event, co-hosted by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU). More than 560 registrations were received in the past week, bringing total attendance to more than 2,000 people from 53 countries. This year’s attendance to date is already substantially greater than the corresponding 2009 conferences for both CUNA and WOCCU, which were held in Boston, and Barcelona, Spain, respectively. “We’re ecstatic that so many credit unions from around the world will be represented at our joint conference this year,” said Dave Grace, WOCCU vice president of association services. “North American credit unions know that our meeting travels globally and many are taking advantage of the fact that it’s close to home this year by sending more executives, staff and board members to experience this unique event.” The conference will take place at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, and will feature speakers on topics applicable to credit unions worldwide. Jim Collins, author of business bestseller, “Good to Great: Why Some Companies make the Leap … and Others Don’t,” will keynote the event. “Coming together to network and learn with other leaders during a difficult year demonstrates the strength and resilience of the credit union movement,” Grace added. “It’s also indicative of credit unions’ improved financial status, allowing them to continue focusing on professional development--a crucial initiative, particularly during challenging times.” For more information, use the link.
