“I believe the Principles & Philosophies Conference should be included as part of all-new hire training for credit union staff. The conference was filled with experiential learning activities, energetic speakers, and a variety of information that taught me the importance of the credit union movement. You can connect with credit union employees, learn from their experiences, and see what their branches are doing to serve the community and members.” - Nysha Morgan, Energy Capital CU

“The Principles & Philosophy Conference is encouraging to reinforce the purpose of the credit union difference. Credit unions are helping the communities and even if we do not always see the results, we need to remember our core purpose of people helping people.” - Elizabeth Seelback, Resource One CU

"The Principles & Philosophies Conference was a very moving experience where we got to dig deep in the meaning behind the credit union movement. It was an eye-opening experience and one I would recommend all credit union staff attend." - Harlie Runner, University & Community FCU
