While the pandemic forced many credit union leagues to cancel or postpone their annual meetings, with some opting to go virtual, the Dakota Credit Union Association decided to hold its annual meeting in person in South Dakota last week, despite the fact that the state and North Dakota had become COVID-19 hotspots.

“I’m glad we did it. I think that the comments from our members that attended were glad we did it,” Dakota Credit Union Association President/CEO Jeff Olson said. “I was nervous about it. I’m still holding my breath a little bit to see how this works out, but I think when it all is said and done, I think we’ll be glad that we did what we did and the precautions we put in place. So far, knock on wood, it worked. It will help us plan for next year.”
