CUNA OpSS Council Conference
October 14-17, 2012
What's the conference really like? Here are a few attendee's reactions to the last few conferences:
The conference provided great opportunities to network with peers and share success stories and opportunities for growth.
The CUNA OpSS Council Conference is the fastest and easiest way to connect with top executives in the credit union movement. I learned more from sharing information with my colleagues in a few days than in months of reading business books or attending other seminars.
This was my first time attending and definately found it to be worthwhile. The information was relevent and the other attendees were very friendly. The opportunity to network with other individuals, in similar roles, was invaluable.
I was able to established a number of great networking contacts. I was really inspired by the sessions on Leadership, which motivated me to read more and provide more guidance and coaching to my direct reports as a result. I really appreciated how members of the CUNA Operations Sales and Service Council Executive Committee interacted with the attendees on a personal level. Finally, I was so impressed by what I heard and learned at this conference, I was motivated to sign up as a volunteer for next year's conference planning committee. Thanks for a great conference!
2009 Conference was my first time attending. The networking that was available at the Conference was just as valuable as the topics and information provided during the sessions. I would definately recommend the 2010 Conference to my peers.
I have learned so much at these conferences from the sessions offered but I have learned even more from interacting with my peers and getting ideas that I could take back to my credit union.
This was my first CUNA OpSS conference but it will certainly not be my last. I learned so much from the sessions that I have been able to bring back to my credit union. The networking opportunities were terrific and I can't wait until next year's conference.
As a first time attendee, it was a great opportunity to network with operations professionals with a wide variety of background and perspectives. The topics reviewed were timely, concise and well-presented. The location was fantastic and the camaraderie among the attendees was indeed memorable.
Outstanding conference. I always come away from these conferences re-invigorated with passion for working in credit unions. I have enough material to help motivate others to be excited about the work that they do. I haven't attended a conference in 3 years, and I'm glad that I was able to attend this years. I won't miss it next year.
I've worked in Credit Unions for over 20 years and out of all the conferences I have attended I find the CUNA Operations Sales and Service to be the best conference to attend. The networking opportunities coupled with the useful and timely information as well as the continued improvements to the conference are commendable and shouldn't be missed.
If you are a Credit Union operations professional and you can only attend one conference in 2009, this is the one you need to attend.
The breakout stirred great thoughts. I walked away with something actionable after each breakout session.
The CUNA Operations, Sales and Service Council is a very valuable resource with online networking, shared information, white papers and an annual conference that allows for important discussions.
As a first time attendee, I found the content of the breakout sessions to be timely and opportunities to network invaluable.
Great networking opportunities. I walked away with a lot of valuable information.
The CUNA OpSS Conference always has some good take-aways that you can apply to your credit union or your job. It also provides opportunities to network face to face that expands your circle of expertise when you're looking for information on topics.
Year after year the OPSS Conference sessions and peer networking helps me to design and implement my strategic sales and service vision plan at my credit union for the upcoming year.
This was my first Cuna OpSS Council conference so I did not know what to expect. After attending, I left with a lot of good & useful takeaways. The entire conference from Key note speaker, break out sessions, and especially the "Grab & Gab Lunch."
This was a great informational conference. I got lots of great ideas and information as we try and improve our Sales and Service Culture. The networking opportunities provided were priceless and will help me evolve my credit unions culture. Thanks!
If you want to expereince the excitement of what is happening at credit unions across the United States and network with high energy and highly successful people...then the OpSS Council Conference is a must for you!!!
This was my second OpsS Council Conference and I feel so fortunate to be able to attend. The sessions were terrific, and the opportunities to connect with vendors and attendees are so valuable. I can't wait for next year!
Attending the CUNA Ops Council Conference not only allows me to reconnect and network with friends, I always pick up new ideas and I always get re energized!
This is a terrific conference with top notch speakers and information. Great value for the dollar and there are very good networking opportunities. I came back with a wealth of information and ideas.
As a first time attendee and new member, this was a great event. My exposure to the Credit Union world was enhanced. It is evident that Credit Union's take care of their own, employees and members.
The CUNA Opss Council Conference provides me with innovative ideas I can take back to me credit unions and implement immediately.
One of the benefits of this conference was being able to network with other attendees who face the same "day to day" experiences as I do. Who better to learn from than someone who has been there (and done it)!
I attend many conferences and find that none have outpaced the OpSS Council Conference for content, networking, and location. I have never come away from this conference without committing to attend the next year.
From the kick off of the conference with John Alston's - "From Ordinary to Extraordinary" to Mark Arnold's - "Pearl Harbor or Pearl Jam, Serving the Generations". The conference fulfilled it tag line of "Elevated Goals".
Attendance at the conference gives me a chance to concrete on the big picture of where I want my credit union to go. Without all phone calls, emails, and constant interruptions I can focus on my staff and what we can accomplish together as an organization. I love the fall because it is the perfect time to plan for the next year, I just get so pumped up and ready to go, go, go!!!
I love the synergy that is generated at the CUNA Opss Council! Each year, I look forward to meeting new professionals and seeing old friends. I know that I can set learning/networking objectives each year and accomplish them because we all have a vested interest in seeing each other succeed. This is the spirit of the credit union movement in action!
