LAS VEGAS (2/8/08)--A fire on the top floors of the Monte Carlo Hotel in Las Vegas last week has forced a venue change for the 2008 Western States Volunteers Conference Feb. 10-12. The California Credit Union League notified all conference registrants of the hotel change in a Feb. 4 e-mail (LoneStar Leaguer Feb. 7). The conference now will be held at the Las Vegas Bellagio Hotel. The Western States Volunteers Conference is for credit union volunteers, including board, supervisory and credit committee members, and any other interested volunteers. However, credit union CEOs and managers also are welcome to participate. The sessions at the conference cover a wide range of topics including: the Bank Secrecy Act, emerging frauds, board room and management ethics, understanding credit union financial information in difficult economic times, what board members need to know about discrimination, the top 10 issues facing supervisory committees, and more.
