Time to Mark Those Calendars!
by CUAD Communications

We may be nearly half through 2019 already, but we still have plenty of educational, networking, and entertaining events in store for you! Here are the upcoming dates and occasions we hope you are considering attending.

CUFD Golf Tournament. This is the Credit Union Foundation of the Dakotas' 3rd annual fundraiser in Jamestown on August 16. You can sign up as an individual, as a team, or as a sponsor! It’s great fun and all for a great cause, raising the funds that our foundation uses for scholarships, grants for financial education, and to support children's charities. Click here for more information or to register now.

Credit Union Professionals Roundtable. This event is scheduled for August 28 & 29 in Bismarck, and registration is open here. The Credit Union Professionals Roundtable is designed for vice presidents, senior managers, supervisors, and even branch managers - your job title doesn’t matter. This session will allow you the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with other credit union professionals throughout the Dakotas.

Small Credit Union Roundtable. DATE MOVED to September 4 in Fargo. This one-day meeting is specifically for CEOs of credit unions $100M or under in assets. Registration is not yet open, but if you are interested in sharing and networking on what small credit unions need to do to grow and stay relevant, save the date now! Topics will include loans, deposits, sustaining member growth, staff and volunteer training and recruitment, and more. 

Fall Hike-the-Hill. A limited number of credit union professionals are allowed on this excursion to Washington, DC, and our early attendee list is already full! However, if you are interested, be sure to contact Jay Kruse to be added to a waiting list in the event of a cancellation. The “Hike-the-Hill” will take place in Washington, DC on September 16 – 18 as we meet personally with key regulators from NCUA and CFPB and with our federal elected officials in a small group setting. Hike-the-Hill is specifically for CEOs and senior level leadership.

New Ideas Conference. Our casual and trendy fall conference is scheduled for October 7-9 in Rapid City this year. For many credit union professionals, this is a favorite event as we focus on new trends and industry disruptors, along with updates on FINTECH developments. The New Ideas Conference is a unique, fun-filled learning experience. Attendees learn to think in new ways as they are pushed to use their imagination and ingenuity while stepping outside of their comfort zones to find creative solutions for growth and inspiration. Registration is not yet open, but mark your calendars now and watch the Memo for more information as it becomes available.

We look forward to all of these occasions where we gather dedicated credit union professionals from around the Dakotas to do what we do best – collaborate, and cooperate, and share ideas for making our industry an ever-greater success. We hope to see you soon!
