MADISON, Wis. (6/19/12)--CUNA Mutual Group's third annual, day-long Online Discovery Conference, offering credit union-focused sessions from the convenience of a computer--for free--is scheduled for Oct. 9.
The Online Discovery Conference is the Web-based equivalent of a face-to-face conference without the associated expenses, or time away from the office. "The beauty of Online Discovery is the convenience," said Jim Buchheim, CUNA Mutual Group, vice president, corporate communications. "We've evolved the online learning experience of the conference to create an even better fit for our credit unions--all the while, keeping it free for everyone."
CUNA Mutual will make an announcement this summer with the full lineup of sessions and speakers. Also included in the conference are networking opportunities, live chat rooms, message boards, social media connections, prizes and a full interactive exhibit hall.
This year CUNA Mutual is adding full video and audio experiences for every session of the online conference. "We discovered that people prefer watching presentations rather than just listening," said Buchheim. "Therefore, videos of every session and the keynote speaker's presentation will be on your computer screen for you to see and hear."
Registration to the Online Discovery Conference guarantees full access to the conference and all materials even after the event is over. Those who register for the conference can watch and listen to all session recordings and download event materials for nine months after the event.
