Registration is on pace compared to previous years for the $2 billion First Carolina Corporate Credit Union's annual Financial Conference next week. Vice President of Member Communication Kecia Brooks said registered attendees as of Aug. 27 were just eight short of last year's final totals, and 10 shy of 2008's attendance numbers. She said she expects to pick up additional registrants in the final two weeks.
"We're pleased with the attendance numbers," Brooks said. "It's such a good conference, and people plan for it each year, so attendance really hasn't been impacted over the past few years."
The three-day event, scheduled for Sept. 15-17 at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge in Charlotte, N.C., is designed for credit union managers responsible for managing their cooperative's balance sheet. Sessions include an NCUA regulatory update, portfolio management in a low rate environment, and a national economic outlook by Wells Fargo Direct & Senior Economist Mark Vitner.
