World CU Conference offers strategic planning facilities
MADISON, Wis. (12/10/08--World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) is inviting credit union boards and executive management teams to conduct strategic planning sessions in conjunction with the 2009 World Credit Union Conference. The conference convenes July 26-29 in Barcelona, Spain. Due to current economic challenges, many credit unions are seeking new ways to keep their leadership engaged and their member service levels high. Alternative approaches to strategic planning and team building exercises, such as meeting in conjunction with the World Credit Union Conference, can more effectively bring an organization's leadership together, WOCCU said. While attending the conference, board members will interact with their credit union peers from around the globe. They can gain new ideas and different insights into credit union management techniques and strategies that can become focal points of their strategic planning meetings, WOCCU said. “Your board will once again understand why they volunteer and how credit unions change people's lives, both at home and in communities worldwide,” said Pete Crear, WOCCU president/CEO. “It's an investment that will return dividends to your credit union for years to come.” Also, attendees can participate in educational breakout session and networking opportunities, and gain a global perspective on the credit union movement. WOCCU can help boards secure meeting space to plan and conduct their strategic planning sessions. For more information, contact Sue Sabatke, WOCCU's meetings manager, at ssabatke@woccu.org or call 608-395-2089. For more information on the World Credit Union Conference, use the link.
