Event description

MACUMA’s Annual Leadership Conference is going virtual this year! Mark your calendars and make plans now to join us.

Join credit union leaders from across the Metropolitan DC area and beyond for MACUMA’s first virtual annual conference and be a part of this pioneering premiere event.

The MACUMA Annual Leadership Conference will kick-off on September 23rd for two days filled with educational & training sessions. Technology allows you to stay safe while coming together on a virtual platform to remain on top of the multitude of the latest and pressing issues credit unions are facing.

We invite you to be part of this experiential MACUMA event.

Three Reasons to Attend the MACUMA Virtual Annual Leadership Conference:

  • Be Inspired: Sessions from dynamic industry thought leaders will bring you a fresh perspective and insight as credit unions navigate the current challenges and plan a path of continued success.
  • Knowledge is Power: Success comes from an understanding of your environment and the market forces in the world around you. Immerse yourself in knowledge; especially during these uncertain times. Stay ahead of the curve and abreast of current industry trends to be at the top of your game.
  • Maximize your Training Budget: The virtual conference offers the same great content MACUMA brings to live events at a fraction of the cost.  With volume pricing you can offer your entire staff and board the opportunity to attend this year’s leadership conference without breaking the budget for one low registration fee.

Who Should Attend? This year…everyone should attend!  CEO’s C-Suite, Directors, Managers, Supervisory Committee Members and those seeking to rise within the ranks of the credit union.
