DAY 1: January 27 | Getting Back to our Roots

League Office | Louisville, KY

The credit union movement began with a simple idea – that people could achieve a better standard of living for themselves and others by pooling their savings and making loans to neighbors and co-workers. It is very important that, as emerging credit union leaders, we take a moment to reflect on why credit unions exist and how they've evolved over the years.  We will learn statistics on Kentucky's credit unions, hear from a Board Director, and get an up-close and personal story of leadership development from a credit union CEO.

Day one also includes presentations from:

  • April Ales, CUNA Engagement Consultant
  • Craig Bilotta, NCUA Examiner
  • Brian Little, CUNA Mutual Group

DAY 2: March 10 | It Starts with You

League Office | Louisville, KY

The mindset and presence you show up with every day impacts your ability to create trust, influence, and an exceptional guest experience. That’s why if you ever want to be a great leader of others, you must first be a great leader of yourself! Being a great leader of yourself starts by being self-aware of how you’re showing up and taking intentional steps to maximize your influence.

Join executive coach and body language expert, Justin Patton, as he guides you to explore who you are at your best, outline the #1 trait that holds all leaders back, and challenges you to communicate with stronger impact. Remember: It Starts With You!!! You won’t want to miss this. . .

League Office | Louisville, KY

The average person ranks the fear of public speaking higher than the fear of death. The truth is, this fear could be hurting your professional and personal life. Leaders will learn how to move past presenting information and start connecting with their audience to build stronger levels of trust and credibility.
