Special Invitation to the NASCUS 2012 State System Summit

A special message from Mary Martha Fortney, President and CEO
June 2012

This fall, the nation's state credit union regulators and state credit union executives will gather in Denver at NASCUS' State System Summit - the only meeting where credit unions and regulators work together to keep the state system safe and strong.

Partnership opportunities between credit unions and regulators like this Summit have always been essential to an innovative and healthy state credit union system. It's also what makes NASCUS so unique. 

Opportunities for dialogue such as our Summit remain especially important as we recover from an economic recession and face the challenges of the 21st century financial services landscape. 

This is why, I, along with the NASCUS Credit Union Advisory Council members and NASCUS Board of Directors, personally invite you to put your NASCUS membership to work and join us in Denver, September 12-14, 2012. Here are just a few reasons why you should attend:

• Learn the latest on financial regulations impacting your credit union
• Network with your fellow state credit unions and state regulators
• Exchange leading practices that make state credit unions great
• Hear the latest from credit union industry insiders and national policymakers

To date, some speakers and presentation topics include:

  • Bob Hoel, Filene Research Institute, on governance issues for credit unions
  • Debbie Matz, NCUA Chairman, on priorities for the agency looking into 2013
  • Jeff Post, CUNA Mutual President and CEO, on credit union risk in today's environment
  • Tom Schauer, President and CEO, Trust CC, on information technology risks facing credit unions

NASCUS has also invited Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper to address our attendees. The Summit will also feature Educational Breakouts and many networking opportunities. To see a working agenda, follow this link.

We are conscious of the economic environment facing credit unions and state agencies and have worked to make the Summit as accessible as possible. Credit unions can register for the early bird rate of $795 and bring along another representative from your credit union for half price. First timers to the conference can join us at no cost. State agencies can also take advantage of a special rate or apply for a scholarship by contacting  isaida@nascus.org .

I hope to see you in Denver. To see more about the Summit agenda, lodging and to register,  click here.   If you have any questions, please let me know at  marymartha@nascus.org .
