Minnesota Credit Union Political Advocacy Director Monica Weber rolled up her sleeves and got to work during the Innovate to Motivate conference in New Orleans.Innovate to Motivate is a national conference for politically involved professionals.Weber, along with Chris Kemm, vice president of credit union advocacy for Credit Union Association of Colorado, helped repair a home destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The conference attendees partnered with Beacon of Hope to repair the home.The volunteers spent four hours clearing out the house and preparing it for renovation. They removed water-damaged sheet rock, stripped wallpaper, patched cracks and cleared ruined furniture and clutter from the home.“The service project opportunity greatly enhanced this conference by providing an additional benefit that is unique to most professional conferences,” Weber said. “After three days of workshops, it was a privilege to give something back to the community I was visiting.”Weber helped coordinate the Minnesota’s Homes for Our Troops service project in 2008.
