• Aspen Institute Fellow and REAL Solutions Field Coach Bill Myers, renowned for creating alternative products that have proven successful in credit unions;
• Chris Dobrzanski, SVP at Vancouver City Savings Credit Union, who will show attendees how to achieve a “triple bottom line.”
Online Registration is available nationwide at the Credit Union Association of New Mexico’s Learning Center: www.cuanmlearningcenter.org. The cost is $299 per person including:
• All educational sessions and materials;
• Hard cover copy of the Untapped book (Click here to see a video of Credit Union National Association President & CEO Dan Mica explain the book's global impact at the World Council of Credit Unions’ conference in Dublin, Ireland);
• Lunch and refreshments served throughout the sessions.
A special price of $170 per room has been secured at the Albuquerque Marriott. The room block is open until September 13. Credit union leaders can call (800) 334-2086 for reservations.
Who Should Attend – and Why
“Social Impact Management Institutes are a way to reach credit union executives, managers, and board members, and connect them to core principles and values of cooperatives and credit unions by learning from experiences of other socially responsible institutions,” emphasized Delfin. “Many other organizations have achieved success by embracing socially responsible business practices in a manner relevant to the challenges facing credit unions. We believe those experiences can add value to this credit union training experience.”
Registration is limited, as the institute will take place during the International Balloon Fiesta, which attracts thousands from around the world. “It’s definitely a perfect time to visit the Land of Enchantment,” suggests Sylvia Lyon, president of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico.
