    Knowing the economic climate and what’s trending is the first step to figuring out where your credit union is heading in 2020. Gaining fresh perspectives from your peers to inspire your goals and strategy is the next piece.

By attending, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss current obstacles and opportunities facing your credit union with peers to find new solutions that enhance member experience.


    I look forward to seeing you there.
