MDC Owner Meetings Are Back!
MDC will triumphantly return to our summer home in Chicago on August 3-5 for our 2021 Summer Owner Meeting! Hosted at the fabulous Ritz-Carlton Hotel, our new format will gather C-suite attendees from the 70 credit unions across MDC’s network in person as well as a broader audience tuning in via a dedicated live stream.
Our agenda includes a combination of thought leadership and actionable takeaways featuring a diverse array of experts from organizations like MIT, Institute for the Future, Pew Research Center, and more. As a new feature this year, we’ve specifically aligned all of our sessions to our current project strategy, which focuses on four key areas where MDC is strongly positioned to have a significant impact on our owners and their members: strategic growth, member experience, emerging technologies, and automation and efficiencies. These four areas are where credit unions should either be closing a gap with our big bank competitors or continuing to push out in the lead.
This year’s keynote speaker, Jon Acuff, is a best-selling author focused on organizational success with 20 years of experience helping companies like The Home Depot, Viacom, FedEx, and Walmart thrive in uncertain times. And in an exclusive session for the credit union leaders attending in-person, we’re bringing back Jeremy Gutsche, founder and CEO of Trend Hunter and our keynote speaker from February, to host an innovation workshop designed to accelerate our network’s ability to push the industry forward both collaboratively and as individual organizations.
And of course, all of this is in addition to the industry’s best, sales-free networking opportunity supported by two amazing receptions, three additional meals together, and multiple breaks throughout the day to discuss your learnings, make new contacts, and strategize with peers.
Thanks to our 2021 Summer Owner Meeting Sponsors for making our amazing meetings both the best experience in the industry and free for our owners to attend!
