Entertainment at Convention is a "Grand Slam"


Convention’s entertainment has something for everyone. If you want to golf, hit the dance floor, shop, sightsee or just enjoy all the camaraderie of your credit union peers, it’s the place to be! You’ll enjoy:


  • The Greater Credit Union Golf Open. Wednesday morning we'll kick things off with our Greater Credit Union Golf Open (shotgun start) at the beautiful Ironwood course in Sussex. You'll be challenged by peers but also the rolling hills of the Kettle Moraine. Proceeds benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. If you don't have your own foursome, no worries! We have a spot for everyone! 

  • A Wednesday Night Pep Rally Party with the Boomers Band. Back by popular demand, the Boomers are back to rock the night away to some of the biggest hits of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Jim Schrimpf of Brewery Credit Union transforms from sedate financial professional to rock and roll savage as part of this high-energy trio. The band is also known for inviting performers from credit unions on stage to wow the crowd. We'll pump up enthusiasm at this awesome pep rally! The band kicks off during Wednesday’s invitation-only Foundation Donors' Reception, which starts at 7 p.m., but opens to all at 8:30 p.m. 

  • The Disclosures. Our movement's passionate singer/songwriters are back to keep us grooving between presentations as event emcees. Chad Helminak of The League and Christopher Morris of the National Credit Union Foundation have distinguished themselves as our movement's youth ambassadors and musical credit union storytellers. Since inventing the musical genre they named "thrift rock" (yeah, they made that up!) they have created a song and video that went viral for Bank Transfer Day, produced a collaborative music video with more than 40 credit unions around the nation for International Credit Union Day, released a song and video for credit unions to use in their web communications and have taught (and played guitar, of course!) at credit union chapter meetings, industry events, staff trainings and even the first Co-op fair in Madison. Their energy is infectious - come see why! 

  • Cooperation Celebration & WCULAF Auction. Thursday night Convention goers will rally for WCULAF, the credit union movement's state PAC fund. With what could be the most expensive election cycle ever approaching, we need strong bidding during our auction to support pro-credit union state candidates. So bring cash or your checkbook! Las Vegas’ own voice impressionist and comedian Larry G. Jones will kick things off as our auctioneer for a short live auction followed by silent bidding as he wows the crowd with his award-winning Legendary Voices in Concert show. His all-star celebrity cast of impressions includes many of Las Vegas’ biggest headliners and Billboard’s greatest artists, including the Temptations, Cher, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Elvis, the Phantom of the Opera and The Rat Pack. There’ll be an abundance of refreshments, music, comedy and fun as we rally to keep pro-CU allies in government.

  • Turn of the Century Guest Tour on Friday. This special ticketed event, at just $69, combines old world charm with a winery tour and a one-of a-kind shopping experience. Prepare for a walk through yesteryear at the Cedar Creek Settlement, where guests find a charming historical village of shops nestled in a restored circa 1864 woolen mill. Tickets are limited, so check this tour when completing your convention registration form today.
