Illinois League Kicks Off Annual Convention Today
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (4/18/13)--More than 650 executives representing 120 credit unions are expected to attend the Illinois Credit Union League's 83rd Annual Convention starting today. The event runs through Saturday.

With a travel theme of "Passport to Success!" the convention returns for a second year to Schaumburg.

Keynoter Mark Sievewright, president of Fiserv Inc.'s credit union solutions, will discuss "How the Future of Credit Unions Will Evolve in the Next 20 Years." He also will present a breakout session, "Competing to Win:  Seven Strategies for Seven Trends in U.S. Financial Services."

The annual convention also includes 22 educational opportunities, including a session with Bill Hampel, Credit Union National Association chief economist.

During the keynote and awards ceremony, several recipients of the Illinois Credit Union Foundation's Commemorative Memorial and Tribute Awards will be recognized, including recently retired long-time league staff members Donald Edwards and Con O'Mahoney.

The closing session Saturday will feature comedy magician Fred Schafer, with "How to Have a Power Packed Productive and Profitable Day in Your Credit Union--Every Day!" 

Other features for this year's convention will include:

  • Credit union "crashers." ICUL is again welcoming young credit union professionals to be part of the annual convention. The initiative is a spinoff of the league's inaugural effort to attract young professionals to the convention last year in partnership with The Cooperative Trust (formerly The Crash Network).
  • Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. Many of ICUL's convention sessions, as well as its annual schedule of more than 60 "QuickBites," telecourses, and in-person sessions, are CPE eligible.
