NACUC's Leadership Development Seminar

Held each June, the Leadership Development Seminar is an intensive, interactive learning format that offers topics ranging from strategic planning, effective team building, financial analysis, managing conflict, running effective board meetings and more.

This seminar is for you if you are:

            • A long-time board chair who wants to enhance your knowledge and hone your leadership skills
            • A newly-elected board chairperson who wants to quickly get up to speed on the skills necessary to be an effective board leader
            • An aspiring chairperson who wants to prepare for a leadership role
            • A director who simply has a desire to understand how to be a more effective member of the board

2020 Leadership Development Seminar
May 17 - 19, 2020

The Leadership Development Seminar is not a conference. It is a small group of board chairs, aspiring chairs and other directors engaging in meaningful discussions and exploring best practices for leading the board and the credit union. Seminar facilitator Tim Harrington will guide you through two engaging days packed with actionable strategies acquired through board chairs’ own inquiry and experiences. The agenda is focused on essential governance topics around a free flow of ideas from the group.

As a participant of this highly interactive seminar, you will learn leadership skills to become more strategic, to govern your credit union more effectively and to ultimately guide your board toward positive results for the credit union and its member/owners.
