Dear Florida Credit Union Leaders:
On behalf of the World Council of Credit Unions and Florida Sister Society, we invite you to join a group of credit union women (and men!) who are at all stages of their professional journey and participate in a networking event that offers thought-provoking dialogue, new professional and personal contacts, and an opportunity to make a difference on the local and global credit union movement.
We are excited to have Carol Schillios as our esteemed keynote speaker. Carol is a maverick change-maker. Her passion for credit unions spans 4 decades as a master trainer and keynote speaker at state, national and international events. She’s a master strategic planning facilitator and trains people to be inspirational leaders. Carol is passionate about helping people help themselves, which is why she created a non-profit Fabric of Life. When she’s not doing leadership training in the U.S., you’ll find her working in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe supporting programs that help people empower themselves through cooperatives. Carol was the first Director of the CUNA Foundation and co-founder of the CU Development Education Program. She is the proud recipient of the 2007 Herb Wegner Award and World Council of CU’s 3-time silver award recipient.
Due to the overwhelming support from our incredible sponsors, this meeting is being offered at only $20 per person (cash or check collected at the door). This includes refreshments, a buffet lunch and a goody bag as well!
To attend a Sister Society meeting, membership in the World Council’s Global Women’s Network is not required but we encourage you to check it out an join! RSVP online here by September 1st. Both women and men are invited to join us! If you have already registered, thank you! Please feel free to share this invitation with any of your credit union peers – it’s more fun to carpool to the event and start your networking even earlier!
