Opening General Session 
The Culture of Ethics – presented by Barry Thompson, CRCM, Managing Partner, Thompson Consulting Group, LLC
Whether it is written as a formal document or merely assumed to exist as a collection of shared values, all organizations have a “Code of Ethics”.  But decisions that involve ethics that seem so obvious to one person may befuddle another, especially when observed behavior of the leadership isn’t always perceived as matching the lofty standards of the “Code”.  So how do you ensure that your Code of Ethics means the same thing to everyone in your financial institution both in definition and in importance?  Do we all really agree on what is “right” and what is “wrong”?  How do you train people in the skill of Ethics?  Barry Thompson will show you how it ultimately becomes a matter of organizational culture.  He will also provide you with practical training techniques you can use to help ensure that your credit union consistently behaves in accordance with ethical standards.

B.   Elder Fraud – instructed by Barry Thompson, CRCM, Managing Partner, Thompson Consulting Group, LLC
As the baby boomer generation ages “Elder Fraud,” will be the biggest growing segment for crime in our country! The criminals will target highly educated people for the greater riches they provide. Often they have worked in occupations that have placed them in close contact with senior citizens. They know exactly how to manipulate the elderly and don’t care anything about the victims. Many of those who become victims will not admit to it or be unwilling to prosecute the criminals. The reason is simple they don’t want anyone to know that they were deceived.  We will review how the attacks work as well as how to get the unfortunate help! This information packed session will give you a whole new perspective on elder fraud.

Do You Sizzle or Fizzle? A Recipe for Leadership Country Style - presented by Dr. Dale Henry, President & Founder, Your Best Unlimited, Inc.
Many believe the road to success belongs to the individual that can make the bottom line boom.  This is simply not true.  Growing organizations realize that to get to the top floor of success requires you to take the stairs.  The future belongs to the listeners, the communicators, and those passionate and dedicated leaders who not only have an enormous amount of energy, but who can energize those around them.
