We'll also enjoy a roundtable discussion, plus a bonfire and s'mores at dusk on the shores of Lake Michigan.

The Community Development Workshop, sponsored by: 

Wednesday, August 22 (full day)

Led by nationally respected development consultant Mark Lynch, this Foundation-sponsored workshop will help participants more accurately identify members' needs. It'll also help you become more strategic in your outreach to generate more wins for both the community and your credit union. You'll:

  • distinguish perception vs. reality when it comes to members' financial challenges
  • identify products and programs that address issues affecting your members
  • learn about strategic philanthropy
  • participate in an exercise that demonstrates the power of partnerships and community fundraising

Stay to enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.
