LIVONIA, Mich. (9/17/15)--The Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) recently received a state association’s highest honor for its annual convention and exposition (AC&E)--MCUL’s showcase event.
The Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) honored MCUL with its Diamond Award for the 2015 AC&E in the category of meetings and expositions of organizations with budgets over $1 million.
"The AC&E is the one event each year that allows MCUL and its subsidiary, CU Solutions Group, to shine with a collaborative effort by our staff from one-end of our organization to the other," said Dave Adams, MCUL president/CEO. "The AC&E showcases the best we have to offer and the best side of who we are."
Adams challenged staff to reinvent the AC&E, based on the book "The Road to Reinvention," by Michigan native Josh Linkner.
Some of the 2015 AC&E highlights included a hilarious performance by the Water Coolers at the MCUL Honors Awards Ceremony (see accompanying video), the first-ever online auction bidding, and an entirely new networking reception.
More than 1,100 people attended the event, which was held in Traverse City, Mich.
