CEO agrees CU meetings lack controversy
Once again Mike Welch has exceeded my expectations! In his recent publisher's column regarding conferences and the avoidance of dealing with controversial issues, he described a feeling that I have had for years. The failure to address controversy doesn't simply stop at national meetings however. Our own state meetings have a "Good O'Boy" format also. To bring up any issue of a controversial nature gives the issuer a reputation of "Maverick". Those who know me know I have never been able to be politically savvy and not speak my mind. I therefore have discontinued attending any conferences and rely heavily on Credit Union Times for an unbiased point of view. Thanks for the continuation of the well conceived and advanced thinking I find in each issue of Credit Union Times. Al Kunze President/CEO Electrical Federal CU Arvada, Colo.
