Still Time to Register for Upcoming Western States Volunteers' Conference
Thursday, January 9, 2014 6:40 AM

The 2014 Western States Volunteers' Conference has been slated for Feb. 2-4, 2014, and online registration is now available. This annual conference is sponsored by 10 credit union leagues, including the Cornerstone Credit Union League. If you have not yet registered, there is still time to do so.

Top industry professionals from around the country will share their knowledge on a variety of topics, from the supervisory committee’s role in the new world of member complaints to quantifying the risks which concern examiners in a low/rising interest rate environment. This year’s keynote sessions include:

  • Rekindling the Fire during These Challenging Times with Jack McCall - The demands of a faster paced life style, work environments marked by accelerating changes, and the constant challenge to accomplish more with less have a way of wearing us down. In this presentation, McCall will inspire attendees to rediscover their truest sources of motivation; re-assess current positions and re-charge their batteries. Along the way, he will also show attendees how to re-capture the magic of laughter.
  • What Volunteers Mean to the Credit Union Movement with Mark Lynch - There are many things that make credit unions unique in the financial services industry. Two unique features that clearly demonstrate the credit union difference are their “people helping people” philosophy and the governance role that volunteers play. Some within the movement suggest that paying directors will make it easier to attract directors in the future. However, this would diminish one of these key credit union differences. Lynch draws on his experience as both a volunteer and paid credit union director to highlight the vital role that volunteers play to ensure credit unions survive and flourish in the future.
  • Play to Your Strengths! Real Championship Coaching for Credit Union Leaders with Mark Adams - There are many business coaches today but not many reach championship coaches. Former head basketball coach, Adams always challenges his team members to play to their strengths and the results speak for themselves. He has created an educational experience that shares how he identified his strengths, his co-worker’s strengths and his player’s strengths to drive remarkable results. Adams will share with conference attendees the successes, the failures and the lessons learned from those experiences.
