2017 – It’s A Cooperative Thing

Leadership Conference 2017

It's a Cooperative ThingCooperative Business Charters Rock for Being More Than Just a Brand.

Download The Brochure

Being a cooperative is as much a way of being as a state of mind. It’s an environment that fosters teamwork and collaboration as well as a commitment to self. You are an “owner” of your credit union. You have a direct say on the direction your credit union is going to take. How do you pay your customer-owners, drive for great prices, and take the lead?


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!
