MADISON, Wis. (8/14/13)--CUNA Mutual Group's fourth annual, day-long Online Discovery Conference, offering free credit union-focused sessions from the convenience of a computer, is scheduled for Oct. 1.
The Online Discovery Conference is the Web-based equivalent of a face-to-face conference without the associated expenses or time away from the office.
"The beauty of participating online is the convenience," said Christy LaMasney, manager of Online Discovery for CUNA Mutual Group.
This year's agenda features 13 credit union-focused sessions, networking opportunities, including chat rooms and message boards, an exhibit hall and prizes. Also, registration guarantees access to conference materials after the event is over.
John Lass, senior vice president of strategy & business development for CUNA Mutual Group, is the keynote speaker. Lass will speak on the power of leadership, culture and strategy within the credit union system. Also, the conference also will feature these industry thought leaders and topics:
Each thought-leader session will feature video, audio, and a question and answer portion.
The online event is designed for CEOs and senior leadership teams of credit unions. However, all credit union and league employees are welcome, said CUNA Mutual.
"Attendees can come and go from the conference as they please," said LaMasney. "This provides great flexibility to allow many staff members from the same organization to attend, if even for just a few hours."
