Illinois chapter leaders play ball at annual conference
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (8/31/11)--Nearly 80 leaders from 29 chapters of the Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) attended the state's annual Chapter Leaders Conference, hosted by the league and the Bloomington Chapter of Credit Unions in Normal, Ill. The event ended Friday. Its theme of "Play Ball!" provided an opportunity for attendees to play their strengths and share ideas, events, and promotions.

"Chapters are at the core of the Illinois Credit Union System and the movement," said Dan Plauda, ICUL president/CEO, at the conference. "They play such an integral part that we could not accomplish what we do from grassroots political advocacy efforts to fundraising to community relations activities." Jim Karch, director of public works for the City of Bloomington, presented information Friday on team building and strengths-based leadership. The conference closed with awards to winners of the Credit Union Political Action Council's (CUPAC) annual chapter fundraising competition. Winners are:
* First place, Southern Illinois Chapter, with more than $15,083 raised. This marks the 12th time the chapter has won first place in the competition; * Second place, Burnett Chapter, with more than $12,910; * Third place, Kankakee Valley, $11,355; and * Most improved chapter, a new award, Illinois Quad Cities Chapter, which increased its fundraising by 615.14%.
Fifteen chapters also received honorable mentions for raising $1,000 or more for CUPAC, during 2010.
