Small Credit Union Conference
This conference is especially structured for smaller credit unions with assets under $100 million. This multi-day conference brings relevant information on topics and issues smaller credit unions face in the real world. Local and nationally recognized industry experts provide the latest information on economic and market trends and forecasts.
The Joseph Fisher Memorial Trust Fund - Massachusetts Credit Unions Only
The Joseph Fisher Memorial Trust Fund was establised to "promote and perpetuate credit union philosophies and the credit union movement through education". The trust provides scholarships for Massachusetts credit unions with assets $30 million and under for educational programs.
Additional scholarship opportunities may be available for your credit union. Don't let the cost of a program keep you from the professional development your credit union may need.
Contact Bill Nagle, SVP, Professional Development or call him at 800-842-1242.
Chapters have always played a significant role in providing leadership, education, and networking opportunities within the Massachusetts and New Hampshire credit union communities. Chapters give credit unions the opportunity to meet regularly, get to know each other, and exchange ideas that help make the credit union community stronger.
