Attendee Meet & Greet

Our first session will be the traditional meet and greet the attending credit unions. Each credit union will present a brief description of their credit union any major activities, what has worked for them and what hasn't.  A great opportunity to begin collaboration and have continued discussions throughout the conference so that you  have some takeaways that you may be able to implement at your credit union.
