Why Do Directors Volunteer? Leadership Development Conference Attendees Share

Credit union volunteers from across the state are still registering to attend MCUL's 2019 Spring Leadership Development Conference (LDC), taking place April 26-28 at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant.

Serving on a credit union board or in committee positions requires a big commitment of time, not only in attending meetings, but also in staying current with industry trends, compliance topics and strategic decision making — all areas of training provided at this year's Spring LDC.

Why do such dedicated individuals share their time, experience and knowledge in volunteering at their credit unions? MCUL asked attendees from the 2018 Fall LDC and here are a few of those responses:

  • "To give back to my community."
  • "Service to humanity is the best work in life."
  • "I believe members need to help."
  • "It's 'MY' credit union and I do what I can to ensure that we continue."
  • "To play a very important role in our society."
  • "To share my experience from other industries."
  • "I look at it as serving my community."
  • "I enjoy helping other people and make my life fulfilled."

Make sure those who give so much of themselves to the credit union have the tools and timely information they need to be successful. The Spring LDC is packed with insights and training ideal for volunteers with all levels of experience and includes the keynote presentation, “Inspired Leadership: From Eisenhower to Lebron.” Those needing assistance with hotel accommodations may contact Monica Strucinski.
