Special Announcements

Join us for several days of special events surrounding our annual CU*BASE Leadership Conference. Designed for CEOs and senior credit union leaders from all CU*BASE clients, Wednesday’s Leadership Conference provides a unique opportunity to get together with your peers and hear CU*Answers’ vision for our partnership during the coming year. And you never know just what Randy Karnes will do…previous years have involved eggs, chickens, teeter-totters, magic boxes (and big clown shoes?!?). We hope you will join us for what always proves to be a fun, energizing and inspiring time together!


This year’s events are scheduled for June 16, 17, and 18, 2009. All CU*BASE clients are invited, and registration is required no later than June 5, 2009.

(NOTE: Registration for the golf outing must be done separately, via the registration form mailed to your credit union’s CEO.  Contact phaehnel@cuanswers.com if you need assistance.)

Location Change! If you are planning to attend any of the education sessions during the day on Tuesday, please note that they are being moved to the Centennial Country Club, 3361 Charlevoix Dr SE, in order to accommodate more attendees. Open the revised invitation to learn more, or use the link above to register now.
