MADISON, Wis. (5/2/13)--The Credit Union National Association announced that Emmy Award-winning comedian and food/travel expert Mark DeCarlo is slated as the Master of Ceremonies for the 2013 America's Credit Union Conference, June 30 through July 3 at the Hilton New York in New York City.
"Mark DeCarlo will make an engaging emcee for this year's conference," said Todd Spiczenski, vice president of CUNA Center for Professional Development. "His witty nature and great cultural insights will be a great fit with the ACUC audience."
DeCarlo has contributed his charismatic expertise in broadcast for more than 10 years. He currently hosts and produces comedic segments on Chicago's No. 1 daytime show, "ABC's Windy City Live," in which he celebrates the people, places and off-kilter characters that define Chicago. His work on the show won him back-to-back Midwest Emmys in 2011 and 2012.
Prior to his work in Chicago, DeCarlo traveled across 400 cities for four seasons of Travel Channel's "Taste of America with Mark DeCarlo." He compiled the experience in his bestselling book, A Fork on the Road: 400 Cities, 1 Stomach.
In 2013, DeCarlo will chronicle his book/performance tour nationwide in a HuffingtonPost.com
Travel Blog and broadcast his new podcast/radio series, "A Fork on the Road Show."
ACUC features business innovators to deliver ideas for growth and inspiration to drive positive change for the credit union movement, CUNA said.
