<p>MADISON, Wis. – This year’s CUNA Symposium held at the Orlando Marriott World Center will feature an educational track designed specifically for credit union directors and volunteers to help them do the best possible job serving their credit unions. “Anyone familiar with the unique structure of credit unions knows that volunteers and elected board members are an indispensable component of credit union success,” says Lin Standke, Symposium program manager, for CUNA. “But to do their jobs well, these people need high quality information and training.” Among the session topics designed exclusively for credit union volunteers and directors at the 2002 Symposium are: What Every Good Director Needs to Know About E-Commerce. How to Conduct a Formal Performance Appraisal for Your CEO. Meet Your Competition-It’s More Than Banks. CEO Compensation.and How to Pay with More Than Money. CEO Wanted.Are Your Hiring or Grooming? The Aging of Volunteers and the Effect on the Board of the Future. This year’s event features a keynote speech from the man who embodies progress and leadership in trying times, Time Magazine’s Person of the Year and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Attendee’s can hear this genuine American hero share lessons in leadership he learned over a lifetime of public service, including the challenging times since last September that have affected us all. Another dynamic speaker slated for this year’s Symposium is Mark Victor Hansen, a.k.a. “that Chicken Soup for the Soul guy.” Hansen has spent the last 26 years helping people in all walks of life reshape their personal vision of what’s possible for themselves. Last but not least Symposium 2002 will also include a lively, interactive National Issues Forum facilitated by Mike Welch, publisher of Credit Union Times (see page 3 story).
