I am certainly looking forward to hanging out and networking with our fantastic credit union members just
a little over seven weeks from now at our Dakota Credit Union Annual Meeting and Summit (DakCU Summit)
on May 9 – 10 in Fargo.
As you know, our many strategic business partners and solution providers who attend the Summit are instrumental in supporting your association and our member credit unions throughout the year. I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to them; we greatly appreciate their efforts!
Many of our product partners attend the Summit for the opportunity to reengage with and say hello to our member credit unions. We also want to remind you that these partners are willing to work with us, constantly improving the products and services we offer to our members, and ensuring we can assist you in keeping the credit union movement relevant and growing. A number of these providers you are familiar with, and there will be some new faces this year as well!
We also lean on our strategic partners for thought leadership and education, and we have plenty to offer at this year’s Summit breakout sessions. For example, with issues facing credit unions in today’s rising rate environment, we have enlisted longtime DakCU partner The Baker Group to provide information and best practices to assist in that area. We feel this information is so important that we decided to repeat the breakout session to give you the opportunity to attend other sessions as well.
Another trusted long-time DakCU partner, Envisant, will be talking about the ever-evolving fraud landscape and what credit unions need to be on the lookout for. In addition, we will have presentations on compliance issues, succession planning and leadership development, from partners League Infosight and CU Risk Intelligence, Canidae Consulting, and more.
A very special thank you goes to CUNA Mutual Group, our system partner and premier event sponsor. We would also like to recognize Millennium Corporate Credit Union for once again sponsoring our Summit Crasher program.
We have many more exhibitors and sponsors, too numerous to list here, but you can see who is currently set to be at Summit by scrolling to the bottom of the page here: dakcu.org/agenda.html.
For those of you who plan to attend, I encourage you to check out the exhibitor booths to learn more about the various products and services being showcased. If you are unable to attend, feel free to contact me with any questions about solution providers or other products you feel would be a good fit for you credit union. We are here to help!
Finally, to our product partners out there that are reading this (and we know you are) who haven’t yet signed up for Summit, do not delay! Sponsorship opportunities are going fast, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun and networking! Vendors can sign up here or reach out to me and we’ll get you set up.
See you at the Summit!
