I read with great interest the article regarding CUNA's Women'sLeadership Summit in the June 22nd issue. The conference appearedto have many quality panelists and some interesting discussiontopics. There was even an interesting reference to the naturaldisasters that almost confronted the attendees. My question isthis: how many attendees actually attended? It seems that ourindustry (OK movement) continues to segment/fragment our creditunion employees so much, that there is now a conference for justabout anything you can think of! (You can insert your ownexamples.) At the end of the article, my friend Nancy Piercesuggests that maybe it's time to "recognize that men may need asimilar conference to address their own issues." I propose thatit's time to initiate the OCUG Conference (Old Credit Union Guys)to discuss such heated Credit union topics as; "Balding, A Sign ofMaturity?", "Lifestyle Enhancement Drugs, What's the Collateral?",and "Retirement Planning, Why Did I Wait So Long?" I'd love to seean all men's conference just to see how many "Credit Union Guys"would really go! I've always thought that having the ladies at theconferences I've gone to in the past was a perk - I've even spokento a few of them!
