2018 NCUMA Summer Conference
Summer is in full swing and people are taking advantage of the warm weather, beaches, and summertime activities. The National Credit Union Management Association is no exception, holding their 2018 NCUMA Summer Conference at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas. The five day event kicked off on Saturday, July 7, with a welcome reception and concluded the following Wednesday, the 11th, with two information sessions. Oak Tree was not able to attend this year, but it seemed to be filled with valuable insight from some of the industry’s finest. So, for those of you like us who were unable to make the trip to the Bahamas, here is a recap of what happened.
After everyone got settled in, and had a night to unwind, the conference agenda began to play out with guests treated to breakfast and an NCUA update by the event’s first speaker. It was an early session that left attendees with the rest of the day to network, explore, and check out the resort. Monday saw a similar start with another breakfast but was comprised of two information sessions that touched on the economy and what needs to be done to avoid another economic downfall. The following day was an almost identical schedule but featured different topics such as leadership roles, millennials, and succession planning. The day didn’t stop there as attendees had the option of participating in a networking golf activity on one of the world’s finest golf courses. As the conference wound down on the final day, the focus was on fin tech and the future of credit unions. This session concluded fairly early but was a good send off and allowed everyone to leave with some inspiration to bring back to their credit unions.
The 2018 NCUMA Summer Conference is now concluded and attendees are back at credit unions across the country. Their newfound insight into leadership, the economy and credit union success hopefully has led them to new ideas and inspiration to keep their institution thriving. It seemed to be a relaxing, information-packed affair that executives won’t want to miss the next time around.
