LDC kicks off with golf, roundtables and exhibit hall
11/06/2013 10:37 pm
The LSCU & Affiliates
Leadership Development Conference, in Point Clear, AL, began early Wednesday morning with the Putt for a Purpose golf outing, ramped up in the afternoon during the director's institutes and the asset sized roundtables before ending with two hours in the sold out exhibit hall.
The asset sized roundtables were broken into three categories: under $100 million, $100 million to $500 million and over $500 million. The conversations in each session were a little different, but each elicited excellent discussions among credit unions. One of the hot topics was NCUA examinations, as well as retaining top talent. Officials from Army Aviation Center FCU, based in Daleville, AL talked about a Leadership Council they had at the credit union that helped employees learn more about various parts of the credit union and show them a path to growth within the credit union.
The Putt for a Purpose golf outing saw more than 50 golfers hit the links to help the
Southeastern Credit Union Foundation (SECUF). The proceeds will help in the professional development of credit union officials in the form of grants and scholarships. Bill Adams of Naheola Credit Union won the long drive, while Bob Roy of APCO Credit Union won the putting contest.
The night ended with the sold out exhibit hall. More than 250 attendees spent two hours browsing the hall and meeting with vendors for solutions. The quaint exhibit hall at the LDC is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time at each booth. On Thursday the exhibit hall will feature paintings from a guest outing.
Also on Thursday, LSCU & Affiliates President/CEO Patrick La Pine will speak, NCUA Region III Director Herb Yolles will talk about the state of credit unions and Alabama Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey will speak during the Governmental Affairs Luncheon.
