With a vision of reaching new heights in 2016, the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) will host its annual conference in Seattle Aug. 4-6 at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel.
The theme for the conference is “Credit Unions Rising High to Success in the Pacific Northwest,” reflecting the innovation and creativity on which the technology-driven Seattle-area has built its reputation.
“This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the group’s last annual conference in Seattle, which was a rousing success. We look to providing attendees with an even more memorable experience this year,” said Timothy L. Anderson, AACUC chair and president/CEO of Government Printing Office FCU, Washington, D.C. “We will deliver a slate of speakers from both within and outside the credit union movement that will provide cutting edge insights, answer questions and inspire attendees to success in the Pacific Northwest.”
Conference speakers and topics include:
Among the highlights of the conference will be the presentation of the 2016 Pete Crear Lifetime Achievement Award, presented annually to recognize a credit union professional or volunteer whose career best embodies the AACUC’s mission to increase the strength of the global credit union community. This year’s honoree is Harold M. Holmes of PFP Services.
Preconference activities include a historical tour and regional chapter meetings on Aug. 3, and a golf outing and financial reality fair on Aug. 4.
Seattle Metropolitan CU will serve as the host credit union for the conference.
