As most of the Summit meeting attendees began arriving in Rapid City on Monday afternoon, business was already underway with several meetings taking place throughout the day. First on the schedule was the DakCU Board of Directors, which held a meeting on Monday afternoon. The order of business included a review of the dashboard and notes from the strategic planning session that was held this past February. They also reviewed the ongoing list of DakCU projects and conducted a complete routine review of financial statements and reports.
The Dakota Health Benefits Trust (HBT) also held a joint meeting for all North Dakota and South Dakota members of the trust on Monday afternoon. The purpose of this meeting was to review the status of the trusts for the past year, with discussion focused on the upcoming year-end renewal and the pending proposals for additional product offerings, such as life and disability.
In addition, the South Dakota GAC held a brief meeting on Monday evening, and the North Dakota GAC committee met early on Tuesday morning. Topics included reviewing and renewing any expiring terms, a reorganization of officers, as well as CUPAC/CULAC analysis and review, and 2023 state legislative priorities.
Late in the afternoon on Tuesday, the Summit Crasher group also gathered in-person for the first time for introductions, following a virtual “ice breaker” meeting that was held in late April. The first meeting was filled with basic credit union industry education and exercises with our facilitator and Crasher mentor, Christopher Morris, Midwest Engagement Consultant at CUNA. We are very pleased to have 13 talented young credit union professionals who will be attending all general sessions, as well as specific Crasher activities during our event this year.
