I have noticed an alarming trend in the last several years and that is that almost all conferences and seminars are being held in large resorts located in such areas as Hawaii, The Bahamas, Arizona, ski resorts in Colorado, and even one on a cruise ship. I for one could not justify my spending our credit union’s money to fly from Florida to Hawaii to attend a director’s conference. I think the message we are sending to our members is that they are paying for us to have nice vacations. I think that this is even more important as we are reaching out to underserved people groups that may not be able to afford a trip to locations such as these.
