Volunteers Drawn to Important Training Topics at Spring Conference 

The MCUL & Affiliates Spring Leadership Development Conference is creating a lot of buzz amongst credit union CEOs and volunteers, and online registration is now open for the popular event, which is March 15-17 at the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant.

Have-to-have information on topics such as the "Consumer Financial Protection Bureau," "Director Duties and Responsibilities," "Understanding Regulations (VAP 416)," "Basics of Internal Control (VAP 427)" and the "Supervisory Committee's Role in Finding Fraud (VAP 304)" are driving many to register, while others are anxious to have their demands met for training topics on "Sssstrategies for Marketing Ssssucccess," "Improving Board Meetings Through Advocacy and Inquiry," "What Does Membership Growth Have to Do With Google Analytics?" and a "Compliance Update."

Well-known industry consultant Tim Harrington is scheduled to deliver the keynote address, and will then stay to facilitate sessions on "Putting the Credit Back into Credit Unions" and "Leadership and Succession Planning for the Board." On Saturday afternoon attendees may choose to participate in optional bonus sessions on the topics of "Stress Testing: A New Regulatory Initiative", "Handling Difficult Conversations" or a prep course requiring no testing on the "Supervisory Committee’s Role in Due Diligence (VAP 303)." Also being offered as an optional session is a "CFPB Roundtable Discussion for CEOs." The event wraps-up Sunday morning with a closing session on the "Bank Secrecy Act for Board Members."

Attendees are encouraged to book their hotel accommodations soon and are reminded that guests are welcome to join participants at the event, which offers a Saturday afternoon activity to craft a photo memory board and welcomes guests at the Saturday night St. Patrick's Day dinner banquet featuring Celtic dancers for entertainment. For the first time, limited rooms are being held at a negotiated rate at the new, nearby Soaring Eagle Hotel and Waterpark, providing more family-friendly fun and accommodations for attendees and their guests.

Credit unions that send five or more participants save on registration. For the complete agenda, hotel information and further details, click here.
