TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — In response to increased convention competition and a desire to include more members, Southeast Corporate FCU scrapped its 2008 annual convention in favor of a reception and business meeting this past spring and a series of fall forums in eight markets.

Response has been positive, according to Vice President of Marketing Ellen Chapman. The spring event was presented at the Florida Credit Union League’s convention, eliminating the need for some members to choose between the two events. And, attendance at this fall’s forums broke attendance records, surpassing the prior year’s attendance by more than 30%. Southeast has presented half-day investment and ALM seminars each fall for years but expanded the events this year to include afternoon educational sessions typically presented at an annual meeting. Approximately 160 executives attended the eight events held across Florida, Mississippi and Alabama.
