EXPLORE STRATEGIES & SKILLS NEEDED TO IMPACT THE SUCCESS OF YOUR CREDIT UNION

The speed of change is both exciting and frightening. Credit Unions can’t continue to do “business as usual”, but must become flexible and quick. To be able to do this, credit unions must have an understanding of critical changes impacting growth, leadership success and innovation. Participants in this credit union cruise/conference will be given a better understanding of those strategies needed to better prepare for fast-paced change.

Ships have been sailing from Seattle to Alaska since the gold rush. Now it’s your turn to follow in the wake of history on a seven-day conference cruise filled with glacier-carved fjords, forested islets and quaint ports along Alaska’s famed Inside Passage.

Journey through the wild terrain of Alaska and discover the natural wonders that await as the rugged beauty of this pristine frontier unfolds. Enjoy luxurious staterooms, cuisine, and service as you discover Seattle, Ketchikan, Juneau,
Skagway and Victoria, British Colombia. Hike through a rainforest, kayak past majestic mountains, explore nature in the surrounding islands, whale-watching and a variety of other adventurous activities.

Don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime to learn and cruise to some of the most beautiful ports in North America’s Final Frontier … Alaska.
