My oven is breaking and it made me think of a blog post for the CU Water Cooler.
I recently sat down with Matthew Hawkins for the weirdest interview I’ve ever done.
Every year I go to the CU Water Cooler Symposium, and every year it is hands-down the best event I go to. And every year people say to me that they were so sorry to miss the Symposium, and that they’ll definitely go next year. Well people, 2015 is your year! Come to Kansas City in October for a great event.
If you have a few extra dollars in your professional development budget that you need to allocate before the end of the year, check out the CU Water Cooler Symposium Credit Union Multi Pack.
It’s a special price for credit union employees and board members interested in attending next year’s Symposium in Kansas City on October 1 and 2, 2015. If you buy two or more tickets at the same time, the price is just $249 each. Check out the Symposium page and snap up the deal before it’s too late.
Last month I gave a talk on cooperatives in Austin at the amazing Credit Union Water Cooler Symposium. It was called Sawdust, Empty Bottles & Moustaches.
Now the video is live, check it out…
It’s one of those things where the sum is far greater than the parts.
The 2014 Symposium agenda came out this weekend, and I’m so honoured to be a speaker again this year. My talk is called Sawdust, Empty Bottles and Moustaches: A Retelling of the Co-operative Story and I’m working on it now, telling the genesis story of the co-operative movement and linking it to today’s surge of the collaborative economy, and drawing on my very early experience on the Board of Modo. We’ll see how it all comes together, but I’m having a great time putting it together and thinking through the narrative.
So, think seriously about joining us in Austin, Texas this September 11th and 12th for what will promise to be an amazing time. The Super Earlybird discount ends on March 31st, and you can get in for only $329 (and if you’re a credit union employee, you’re eligible for an additional $100 discount).
I have a new post on the CU Water Cooler site. It’s about how credit unions can be more strategic when it comes to their community contributions, their donations to organizations doing good work in their communities.
I’m really proud of it, check it out.
