As credit union directors continue to be challenged by changes in the financial marketplace, it is imperative that they are positioned to lead effectively. At the MCUL & Affiliates 2013 Fall Leadership Development Conference, industry expert Jack Wolf returns by popular request to help prepare board members and executives to be most successful. Wolf will kick off the Sept. 13-15 event with the keynote address, "Taking the Helm! Board Leadership During Extreme Change" where he will offer tools for increasing outside-of-the-box thinking, creating consensus with other board members and improving strategic processes. Wolf continues with a two-part breakout session on "Clear Communication: The Key to Credit Union Success" where he explains how clear and concise communication can be achieved and how to align directors to present a unified message. The event will be at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Acme near Traverse City and will offer plenty of enjoyable networking opportunities for participants. Literature will be mailed in June to all credit union CEOs for distribution to their directors to review.
