When Wisconsin credit union professionals gather in the Wisconsin Dells May 3-6 for The League's Annual Convention & Expo, they'll be inspired by an amazing lineup of speakers, like Lara Hodgson - a dynamic business mogul, innovator and problem solver whose ideas are helping to forge a better world.


Lara HodgsonLara Hodgson (right) was educated as an aerospace engineer and became a Harvard grad with an MBA. But she was also a young mother. So she combined her training and personal experience to develop a patented line of spill-proof drinkware, called Nourish, for young children. She realized when developing that business that small companies needed a faster way to get paid. So she founded yet another venture, NOWaccount, which morphed into a multi-million dollar success. And she was only getting started!

Don't miss her at Convention if you're an executive leader, marketer, business development professional or idea generator!


Over her career, Hodgson has been more than just a small business achiever. She's led top, global companies to new heights, from retail to investments, to Internet strategy and others. She co-founded and led a firm specializing in investment, development and management of complex and innovative "world changing" projects.

Her ideas not only revolutionized business processes and societies, but also enlightened economic thinkers worldwide. She authored a white paper on international infrastructure in which she describes an impending shift in the global balance of power.
