Leagues, NCUA, and CMG Present
“Boot camp” has a whole new meaning for a group of small credit union leaders who attended an insightful educational event hosted by the National Credit Union Administration’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) and the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues in Los Angeles on Saturday.

At the second annual CEO Boot Camp, credit union CEOs, staff, board members, and industry experts came together for a day of training, delving into operational and volunteer issues, and discussing best practices for achieving success. Included were representatives and presenters from CUNA Mutual Group (CMG).

"I thoroughly enjoyed the training and learned a lot," said Dan Taay, CEO of Technicolor FCU. "I brought my loan manager, director of marketing, and a board member with me." Taay was just one of several who found the event extremely helpful.

The following speakers presented to nearly 70 attendees:

  • Larry Palochik, senior vice president of member solutions for the Leagues, and Mark Klinkert, vice president of education and training for the Leagues—Linking Your Strategic Plan to Your Business Plan
  • Arnold Ramirez, research and information consultant for the Leagues—Key Elements of the Bank Secrecy Act
