Past Attendee's Testimonials

This conference was life changing! I have enjoyed my transition to the CU from banking and this conference is a blessing! This conference really stressed the reasoning we are who we are!

Taneshia Henderson, Tarrant County's 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 P&P Conference was a very moving conference where we got to dig deep in the meaning behind the CU movement. It was an eye opening experience and one I would recommend all CU staff attend.
