Volunteer Leaders Conference

August 11-13, 2017  |  Dollywood DreamMore Resort  |  Pigeon Forge, TN1-DreamMore-Resort-Feature-Photo

As a volunteer, no one is better positioned to affect the future of your credit union than you are. 
You have accepted a major responsibility in guiding your credit union.  Ongoing education is important
to reach the next level of challenge and opportunity.

Whether you're just getting started at your credit union, or you're a seasoned veteran, our conference
offers valuable learning opportunities to help sharpen your skills to make your leadership role more effective.

The conference is designed to help you understand changes in the credit union industry and recognize
challenges facing your credit union. We'll discuss the issues that are most important to you. In addition,
you'll have plenty of opportunities to "network" with other volunteers from across the region, ask the
burning questions, and discover how you can more effectively serve your credit union and its members.

Session Descriptions


BSA Update & Annual Training | Debbie Painter

Boards of Directors must have adequate BSA/AML training in order to understand the requirements, the risks and the ramifications of noncompliance. This session is intended to give Volunteers an overview of the general requirements and the most updated information regarding the “hot” buttons for examiners in 2017. This is an excellent opportunity for those Volunteers who have not had previous training, and for those who have, to be updated on the changes and new expectations.
