Cornerstone provides online leadership experience

by Cornerstone Credit Union League | May 21, 2020

Virtual conference combines YP, Women’s, and Leadership conferences.

Credit union leaders won’t want to miss this must-see online experience, Sept. 1-3. This virtual event will enable you to ELEVATE your career with diverse topics that provide development and insights for staff at all levels, from aspiring leaders to executives and board members.

Watch for your chance to register the week of June 22 and mark your calendars now to attend. The program will occur each afternoon, giving you the chance to balance any work you may need to accomplish earlier in the day.

This online experience gives you the opportunity to attend all three leadership conferences—Young Professionals, Inclusion (formerly the Women’s Conference), and Leadership Summit—giving you the maximum return on your investment. Additionally, the online event will feature a virtual EXPO hall where you can network with numerous exhibitors and sponsors.

“After almost a year of planning each event to help educate and grow our members, we knew we had to provide an online experience during this time when people are cautious about traveling or gathering in groups,” said Experiences & Events VP Tamra Gaines. “I believe this will provide credit union staff with opportunities for professional development and continue to showcase solution providers through our sponsors and virtual EXPO. We are committed to making it fun and informative.” The Cornerstone Foundation will also be hosting SYNG as part of the program.

As credit unions begin opening their doors and transitioning their business operations, Cornerstone continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety of its members. “With so many factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic still unknown, we made the decision to transform our leadership conferences into a single, dynamic virtual experience,” said Cornerstone President/CEO Caroline Willard. “This is just one of the many ways your League is serving your needs during this unprecedented time.”

The online conference is designed to help credit union leaders across the nation discover ways to thrive and rise higher. The primary program focus is not solely on what any individual can do for the credit union, but on a balanced model that also addresses the team, the organization, and the larger community.

“This decision makes good sense from a business and safety perspective,” said Karen Hart, Cornerstone EVP, chief financial officer/chief administrative officer. “During this crisis, we’ve had the opportunity to get creative and find new ways to serve our members, and this online conference will help them explore best practices, network with peers, and advance their careers.”
