EmpowerFI announces CU On The Water

LANGHORNE, PA (March 2, 2022) — CU On The Water is the most unique learning experience for credit union executives. Luxury Learning, VIP Excursions, and Exclusive Keynote Speakers are just a few of the unique offerings this conference has to offer – all aboard a yacht.

CU On The Water promises an experience like no other. Credit Union executives will experience two days of immersive workshops, presentations and VIP networking aboard the Venetian Lady Yacht on Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

EmpowerFiTM, a strategic marketing and transformational growth firm for credit unions, announces its latest event – CU On The Water, an immersive, unique learning and networking experience for credit union leaders.

Taking place May 2 – 4, 2022 in Miami, FL, the credit union conference promises an experience like no other found in the industry. Participants will experience two days of immersive workshops, presentations and VIP networking, along with a full third day of unique excursions to promote collaboration amongst peers.

CU On The Water touts its being the “only luxury learning experience for credit union executives” and promises exclusive content both during and between sessions. This one-of-a-kind gathering will take place on the Venetian Lady, a yacht operating on Biscayne Bay in Miami.

Kelly Hellickson, President & CXO for EmpowerFiTM says: “Our registration is only open to the first 50 attendees, so participants can expect an exclusive event that has luxury from beginning to end. Expect high-end experiences, concierge services, special excursions and unwinding like no other. This is the only event of its kind that the industry has seen, all while on a yacht.”

In addition to the limited number of participants and top-tier treatment, organizers are promising exclusive content from a carefully curated lineup of presenters. Presenters are set to arm those in attendance with new strategies, insights, motivation and know-how, to take their respective credit unions to the next level.

For those in attendance, the agenda is built to help spur on fresh ideas through a curated lineup of presenters from brands like Google, Pepsi, AdWorthy, Faraday and more. Sponsorship opportunities for organizations supporting the Credit Union Movement are available. Organizers have stated that sponsors will have uncommon access to credit union executives in a more intimate learning environment. Connecting with attendees away from the hustle and bustle of sessions promises to be an ideal environment for all.

EmpowerFiTM CEO, Hilary Reed wants to remind those who are interested to attend to do so with a different mindset. “This event is all about a group of peers and motivational leaders coming together for something totally unique,” she said. “It’s really an opportunity to shift what you know about traditional conferences and credit union gatherings. CU On The Water will enable leaders to gather with other credit union decision-makers as well as experts from national brands outside of the industry. The event will ignite new personal networking relationships and spur extraordinary ideas.

Reed continued, “Even outside our immersive learning sessions, we’ve sought to bring unique touches to this event. We’ve collaborated with local guides and partners that will provide our attendees with a cultured Miami experience. We hope people will not only leave with rich ideas but with a refreshing taste of local food, music, and entertainment – representative of the diverse and multicultural Miami region.”

Registrations are accepted through April 2022. It is highly recommended to sign up quickly, as the event is limited to the first 50 attendees. Visit to register and to download the complete CU On The Water guide.
