MADISON, Wis. (12/1/09)--More than 2,500 credit union leaders are expected to attend The 1 Credit Union Conference, July 11-14, in Las Vegas. The conference, which will be held one year only, combines America’s Credit Union Conference and the World Credit Union Conference into one event. America’s Credit Union Conference and Expo, sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), and the World Credit Union Conference, sponsored by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) will not be held as individual events in 2010. CUNA and WOCCU are combining the two conferences into one event that will offer attendees four days of networking opportunities and educational sessions. The nation’s economic conditions have triggered shaky consumer confidence and rising expectations, which present challenges for credit unions worldwide. The 1 Credit Union Conference aims to give credit union leaders some ideas on how credit unions can innovate and get a leg up on the competition, CUNA said. “Our combined conference provides the best and most economical opportunity we can offer for all of us to find the resources we need to help our credit unions survive and thrive,” said CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. The event will be held at the MGM Las Vegas. More information will be available in early 2010. For more information, use the link.
