Everest climber sports author to be at league confab
CORALVILLE,  Iowa (9/14/12)--The annual Iowa Credit Union Convention, themed "Unlock the Potential," will take place in Coralville Sept. 19-21, with more than 350 credit union CEOs, directors, other executive staff, guests and vendors focusing on advancing credit union growth and vitality.

Charlie Wittmack, an explorer, attorney and the only person in history to complete the World Triathlon, will be the opening keynote speaker. Wittmack will share his story of extraordinary resolve, determination and success in the face of unprecedented challenges, said the Iowa Credit Union League.

Internationally recognized motivational business speaker Ross Bernstein will be the closing speaker on Friday. Bernstein is the best-selling author of 50 sports books and has appeared on thousands of TV and radio programs throughout his career. He will use sport stories as a metaphor for life and for business to energize convention attendees by challenging them to not just be ordinary, but to make a difference and be extraordinary.

Fourteen education sessions are also planned. Among the topics: How to prepare for a crisis, marketing and business development, what effects the economy has on credit unions, and compliance updates geared toward directors, among others.

In addition to a reception Wednesday night, Iowa Credit Union Foundation's (ICUF) annual Benefit Night will be Thursday night and will feature a dessert reception and live music featuring the University of Iowa's steel drum band. All proceeds will be used to fulfill ICUF's mission of helping Iowans build wealth, responsibility and independence.
