“The MDC owners meetings provide updates on current research activities, allow for input on the usefulness of the project, and allow for input on spending additional time and resources on the activity. Owners are also given the opportunity to collectively decide and prioritize on future research and development ideas. The evenings allow for excellent networking with peers and other credit union decision makers.” – Carroll Scarborough, EVP/CFO, Pen Air Federal Credit Union
“At the most recent MDC owner meeting, we met another CU over lunch and found out that we were working on the same initiative and are now considering teaming up. That alone was worth the whole trip. The whole event was well executed, the rooms were very nice, and the food was yummy. Kudos to the MDC team!” – Laura King, EVP/COO, LGE Community Credit Union
There is so much value in hearing from fascinating people in other industries. What can we learn from their perspectives and experiences? Some of our speakers at recent owner meetings have included representatives from:
- CEB TowerGroup
- Havas Worldwise (advertising)
- Highnote Foundry
- IBM Watson Group
- Jellyvision Lab
- Member Loyalty Group
We also invite authors, researchers, and subject matter experts to speak at our meetings and hang out with our owners. Our twice-a-year, face-to-face meetings give our owners a chance to build relationships with their peers, talk to fascinating outsiders, and bring back new ideas to their credit unions. Plus we always go somewhere warm in February – how can you beat that?!
“Great job with this last owner meeting! I really thought we hit on all cylinders with every aspect. Great speakers, great projects, great updates, and great panels.” – Robert S. Lockett, III, CSO and SVP Diversified Services, Workers Credit Union
“The owner meetings are a great place to network with the industry’s brightest minds and leaders about actionable initiatives that will advance Bethpage’s strategic plan.” – Kyle Markland, COO, Bethpage Federal Credit Union
