Why Attend?

This conference is the perfect opportunity to network with volunteers from credits unions in the Cornerstone region, share best practices, and discover future trends by collaboration and training.  In addition to being able to attend six general sessions and your choice of 5 of 15 breakout sessions, you can receive Certificates of Attendance/ Completion for Financial Literacy, BSA Training and Supervisory Committee training.

*NOTE: NCUA rules require federal credit union board members to become financially literate within six months of their election or appointment. Cornerstone Credit Union League is offering Certificates of Attendance/Completion for credit union volunteers to document attendance at our financial literacy training.  In addition, state chartered credit unions are subject to similar fiduciary duty requirements requiring training on financials.  For Texas Credit Unions Only:  In March, The Texas Credit Union Department published a proposed rule which would require Texas credit unions to develop an annual training program for directors.  If passed, the rule will become effective Summer 2014.
