Free Full-Day Credit Union Virtual Conference- Don't miss out!

Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 3rd, CUNA Mutual Group is holding its annual Discovery Conference. But, this year instead of being in Florida or some other warm location, the event is being held in your office, desk, couch, wherever you want to be. You can show up in a suit or pajamas, it doesn't matter!

Not only can you attend from anywhere, the price is right ... FREE!

But, free doesn't really mean much if the content isn't worth your time. The conference has a great line-up of speakers and topics. Here is the full agenda: Discovery Conference. There are regular speaker sessions, as well as, chat sessions. 

Like regular conferences, there will be an Expo center and a networking room in addition to the sessions. They will even be giving away prizes including a $5000 Discovery grant to a credit union, an iPad, an iPod Touch and much more. The prizes are enough reason to at least check it out, right?

I'm not being paid to write about this conference, I just think this is a great learning opportunity for credit unions. Check out the sessions and bring in specific staff members for one or two sessions. Or, attend all day. I've seen many of the speakers before and they are top-notch and you will learn something new.

If you aren't sure how a virtual conference works, here is a youtube video explaining the set up. Watch it below. Here are also the provided conference tips.

What are you waiting for ... REGISTER!

Due to the Discovery Conference, there won't be a new CU Chat Up this week, but the show will be returning next Wednesday at the new time of NOON CT about Rewards Checking and whether it is a sustainable pricing model or not.

If you didn't register in time or are reading this after November 3rd, the sessions will be archived and available for viewing for 90 days. (I will post link after the event)

I hope to see lots of CU Chatters in the networking room!
