MADISON, Wis. (3/2/16)--Alex Sheen, founder of the nonprofit organization and social movement because I said I would, will deliver the keynote address at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) America’s Credit Union Conference, to be held June 26-29 in Seattle.
Founded in 2012 and inspired by Sheen's father’s death, because I said I would is dedicated to improving humanity through kept promises. The organization distributes cards on which people write down promises they want to fulfill--either to themselves or to others. To date, Sheen has delivered more than 3.15 million such cards to more than 48 countries.
“Alex’s message about the power of promises will resonate with attendees regarding the commitment credit unions make every day to their members,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.
In his keynote, Sheen will tell the story of because I said I would and cite real-life examples of kept promises to demonstrate the value of accountability, which aligns with the credit union “People Helping People” philosophy.
Sheen’s keynote will be immediately followed by the presentation of Credit Union Magazine’s CU Hero of the Year Award.
