Cornerstone Credit Union League Annual Meeting Kicks Off with First-time Attendee Orientation
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 6:55 AM

First Time Attendees

The first official Annual Meeting & Expo of the Cornerstone Credit Union League kicked off this morning with a first-time attendee orientation. More than 100 credit union professionals and volunteers attended the session. Robert Johnson, board president of Pine FCU in Pine Bluff, Ark. was among those who attended the orientation, and says it was a morning well spent.

“This is all new to us, so I definitely learned a lot about the League and what we can expect from our League membership,” Johnson said. “It was also beneficial to learn what we can expect over the next few days at the conference.”

In addition to receiving an overview of the conference, attendees learned about Cornerstone, the Cornerstone Credit Union, Credit Union Resources and the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation. While Johnson said he was aware of the Foundation, he didn’t know the full scope of what they do. And neither did Rena Smith, manager of Cowboy Country FCU.

“I’m just so excited to be here and to discover everything that is available to me as a member credit union,” said Smith.

Smith has been with Cowboy Country FCU for 13 years, and has served as its manager for just two years.

“I’m very glad I made it down for the orientation this morning because I learned so much, and now I feel more confident in my ability to navigate the three-day conference.”

Following the new attendee orientation, Cornerstone CEO Dick Ensweiler welcomed attendees to this conference. One team, one dream, United for Good is the theme for this year’s conference, and Ensweiler told attendees he couldn’t think of a more appropriate theme.

“When we first embarked on this journey of becoming a regional league, we all shared the same vision: to unite our respective leagues so that we could grow stronger and better to meet the needs of our member credit unions well into the future,” Ensweiler told attendees. “I’m confident that this was, and is, the best decision.”

2014 would have been the 80th anniversary of the Arkansas Credit Union League, the Credit Union Association of Oklahoma and the Texas Credit Union League.

“Today, we celebrate our history and our future,” Ensweiler told the credit union crowd. “One team, one dream, United for Good.”
