October 28-30, 2014
Graylyn International Conference Center, Winston-Salem, NC (map link here)

"Attending the conference was extremely beneficial to me personally and professionally. I had the opportunity to meet some very creative and out of the box thinkers from different credit unions. I learned the meat and potatoes of the credit union principles and philosophy. I left energized with lots of ideas and contacts. The entire conference, including location, was a wonderful event. I am truly happy to have attended.” -- Patrina Hemingway, Duke FCU / 2013 conference attendee

Sharing the core principles & values that make credit unions great! Now in its fifth year, the Principles & Philosophy Conference educates credit union staff about the history of the cooperative and credit union movements, shares the key differences between credit unions and banks, and offers attendees a chance to learn about the changes in the financial services industry.

The conference is a "deep dive” into the Seven Cooperative Principles, as well as the social purpose of co-ops and credit unions. Attendees leave with a greater understanding of just how special credit unions are, and how the Seven Cooperative Principles are at heart good business practices. .


Who should attend. The Principles & Philosophy Conference appeals to a wide range of professionals, including:

  • Young professionals who wish to learn more about credit unions.
  • More seasoned professionals who have come to credit unions from banks and other industries.
  • Longtime credit union employees who wish to deepen their appreciation for the uniqueness of credit unions. 

No matter where you are in your credit union career, the Principles & Philosophy Conference will deepen your appreciation of the credit union movement!

 Meeting information. In 2014, the conference returns to the beautiful Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston-Salem. Lois Kitsch (National Credit Union Foundation) and Larry Blanchard (CUNA Mutual Group) will once again serve as co-facilitators of the conference. Larry & Lois have impacted the national and worldwide cooperative industry through their decades of award-winning service in the credit union movement.
