LAS VEGAS -- On the minds of many of the attendees and speakers at NACUSO's annual conference this week will likely be credit unions and their pressing challenge to remain sustainable.
That's one of the messages the association is trumpeting: sustainability is possible through the design and implementation of collaborations and networked businesses. Gary Mangiofico, practitioner faculty of organizational theory and management at Pepperdine University, will speak on the timely topic this morning at the Encore Las Vegas.
Continuing with the collaboration message, Michael Taylor, co-founder and CEO of SchellingPoint, a Malvern, Pa.-based collaboration network building firm, will share his perspective on "how panthers, lions, and tigers all share the same cage at the zoo."
NACUSO President/CEO Tom Davis will open up today's gathering with a welcome message on collaboration that asks "who are those guys," "how do they do that," and "how can I use that."
