From the CEO
August 2, 2016

Dear Members:

With the summer heat fully upon us, I thought this would be a good time to share some Corporate One “hot” happenings with you. We’re busy this fall, and in addition to attending 12 credit union conventions through November, we’re coming soon to a city near you with some outstanding member engagement events. I’m really excited about the opportunities to engage with you and chat about what’s going on at your credit unions.

Florida member engagement events: CUs on Tap

Along with the weather, the election season is heating up, and you’re invited to join us in Florida for one of seven events called CUs on Tap. Each event will be an afternoon of political discussion and brewery tours/beer tastings to bring us together and in honor of credit union advocacy. Sponsored/hosted by Corporate One and LSCU, these events are great opportunities for credit union advocates and credit unions’ young professionals and leaders to network.

Our afternoon will kick-off with special guest speaker and former NCUA board member Geoff Bacino, from Bacino & Associates. Geoff will be discussing how the political environment and elections could impact credit unions this year. He’s an energetic, passionate speaker who lives and breathes politics, and I’m excited to have him share his insights with you. After Geoff, we will move on to enjoying a local brewery in each respective city and supporting LSCU’s FedPAC.

Beginning with Tampa on August 30 and running through mid-October, CUs on Tap will be at a city near you. Stay tuned for more details in the mail and on our Events Calendar.

Ohio member engagement events: Member Connect Summits

Last year’s Member Connect Summits were a big success, and I truly enjoyed hosting each event and connecting with those of you who attended. That’s why I’m so excited to announce this year’s plans!

We hope you’ll save the date this September for one of two special events because we’re taking you out to the ballgame. Just like last year, this year’s Summits will be a “home run” of informative and strategic content with presentations from some of our industry’s leading experts and opportunities to connect with each other. Our ultimate goal is to position your credit union for growth as we discuss strategies for leveraging mobility and connecting with today’s digital consumers.

On September 20, we will be at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati where we’ll enjoy a stadium tour, photos on the field, and the opportunity to hear from the legendary Pete Rose, a member of the Big Red Machine and winner of three World Series rings. Then the very next day, September 21, we’re going to Progressive Field in Cleveland to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what happens on game day, cheese it up during mascot photos with Slider, and enjoy one of the last regular-season games with the play-off hopeful Indians from a private terrace or lower-bowl seats.

I encourage you not to miss these special opportunities to engage with us, network with each other, and enjoy some valuable education and fun. We hope you’ll save the dates for these events now, and stay tuned for more details coming soon!
