This conference was amazing – educational, without being boring. It took me on a fascinating journey through the credit union movement with a variety of spontaneous, interactive exercises. I recommend that everyone in the credit union industry, at all levels, attend this conference!    Vickie Underwood, Catalyst Corporate FCU

What an amazing conference! I’m so glad I was able to attend and learn about the credit union movement. I came from the banking world and didn’t know much about credit unions. I would recommend this conference to all credit union staff at all levels. Travis Gatewood, Me/CU of Oklahoma City

I had a great time and loved it. I learned a lot and looking forward to more! Keary Miller, People's Trust FCU
