2016 – Redefining Everything Credit Union

Leadership Conference 2016

Download The Brochure

If tomorrow there were no credit unions and you could start all over, what would you do differently when rebuilding the industry from ground up? How would you redefine credit unions, branches, board members, and owners? How would you change the reality to speak to today?

Join us for this year’s Leadership Conference, where CEOs and senior leaders from all CU*BASE credit unions will explore how to build, deliver, and redefine what credit unions will mean to future generations while holding on to our roots.


Designed for CEOs and senior credit union leaders from all CU*BASE clients, the CU*Answers Leadership Conference provides a unique opportunity to get together with your peers and hear CU*Answers’ vision for our partnership during the coming year. We hope you will join us for what always proves to be a fun, energizing and inspiring time together!
