I read with great interest the article regarding CUNA’s Women’s Leadership Summit in the June 22nd issue. The conference appeared to have many quality panelists and some interesting discussion topics. There was even an interesting reference to the natural disasters that almost confronted the attendees. My question is this: how many attendees actually attended? It seems that our industry (OK movement) continues to segment/fragment our credit union employees so much, that there is now a conference for just about anything you can think of! (You can insert your own examples.) At the end of the article, my friend Nancy Pierce suggests that maybe it’s time to “recognize that men may need a similar conference to address their own issues.” I propose that it’s time to initiate the OCUG Conference (Old Credit Union Guys) to discuss such heated Credit union topics as; “Balding, A Sign of Maturity?”, “Lifestyle Enhancement Drugs, What’s the Collateral?”, and “Retirement Planning, Why Did I Wait So Long?” I’d love to see an all men’s conference just to see how many “Credit Union Guys” would really go! I’ve always thought that having the ladies at the conferences I’ve gone to in the past was a perk – I’ve even spoken to a few of them!
