The 1 conference offers networking entertainment
MADISON, Wis. (5/7/10)--Attendees of The 1 Credit Union Conference have access to additional events before, during and after the July 11-14 meeting in Las Vegas. The conference, co-hosted by World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and Credit Union National Association (CUNA), offers a full educational program for the four-day event at the MGM Grand Hotel. Also, day tours in and around Las Vegas, tickets to stage shows, an executive breakfast series and a golf tournament are available to attendees at an additional cost. The 1 Credit Union Conference combines WOCCU’s World Credit Union Conference and CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference for this year only. The synergy has led to the inclusion of additional events on this year’s agenda. During the conference, six day tours will be offered for a fee. Participants can go on a Las Vegas city tour or travel to the nearby Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Those interested in a “backstage view” can tour the set of Jubilee! to see the inner workings of a Las Vegas production show and meet the performers. For evening entertainment, blocks of tickets have been purchased for three stage shows: Barry Manilow, The Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil and Viva Elvis Cirque du Soleil. Tickets range from $135-$150 and can be purchased online after completing the conference registration.

Conference attendees also can travel to Utah and Arizona for the National Parks and Route 66 post-conference tour. During the July 15-18 tour, participants can see Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks, Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon--all before following Route 66 back to Las Vegas. The conference will feature a learning and networking series for credit union CEOs and executives consisting of three breakfast sessions (July 13-15), featuring well-known business authors. The Executive Series focuses on credit union leadership issues. Each participant will receive presenters’ books as part of the program. A new event, the T-Up FORE WOCCU Golf Tournament, will debut in Las Vegas on July 10. The charity golf event will benefit The Global Women’s Leadership Network, a new WOCCU initiative designed to alleviate poverty through the empowerment of women around the world. The entrance fee of $250 per golfer includes continental breakfast and boxed lunch at Bear's Best Golf Course in Las Vegas. For more information, use the links.
