Western States Volunteers' Conference Slated for Feb. 2-4, 2014
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 6:35 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.

Top industry professionals from around the country will share their knowledge on a variety of topics at the following keynote sessions:

  • 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 Jack will teach us how to rediscover our truest sources of motivation, re-assess current positions and re-charge our batteries. Along the way, he will also show us how to re-capture the magic of laughter.
  • What Volunteers Mean to the CU 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. Mark Lynch has been a volunteer credit union director and a paid credit union director and in this presentation uses this experience to discuss the vital role that volunteers will play to ensure credit unions survive and flourish in the future.
  • Play to Your Strengths! Real Championship Coaching for CU Leaders with Mark Adams
    There are many business coaches today but not many real championship coaches. Former head basketball coach, Mark Adams always challenges his team members to play to their strengths and the results speak for themselves. Mark 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. Mark Adams shares the successes, the failures and the lessons learned from those experiences. Adams has created a culture changing educational experience that will challenge each individual on your team to play to their strengths.
