"With a forward-thinker like Rendel at the helm, this year's event will not only foster important relationships between credit unions, but inspire change in line with this year's theme: Looking back to look forward."
Attendees of Rendel's keynote session, "It's 1934 All Over Again - A Revitalized Movement and a Promised Future for All," will hear how credit unions' pursuit of universal value and service can be directed to fuel the growth and innovation that they will need to thrive.
Conference attendees will also develop and implement strategies for fostering important community ties by meeting with knowledgeable industry vendors and taking part in valuable peer conversations. Then, during hot-topic sessions, industry experts and speakers will introduce new perspectives, strategies and action-plans for overcoming the biggest challenges facing today's community credit unions.
Also on-site, the
