New York Times Best-Selling Author and Navy SEAL Eric Greitens Keynotes NAFCU’s Credit Union Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Conference May 15-17 in Asheville, N.C

WASHINGTON— Eric Greitens, former Navy SEAL and New York Times best-selling author of The Heart & the Fist, will inspire and energize attendees with his extraordinary brand of leadership at the National Association of Federal Credit Union’s (NAFCU) Credit Union Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Conference, May 15-17 at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel in Asheville, N.C. The deadline for early registration savings is March 29. The conference is open to NAFCU member and nonmember credit unions.

“Greitens’ philosophy and achievements are awe-inspiring. He proves that with passion and drive you can do whatever you set out to accomplish,” said Lisa Cox, NAFCU director of events and education. “His work with the sick and the poor on four continents, including Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, as well as his experience on the battlefield as a commander of high-profile missions in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kenya; demonstrates unequivocally the power of leading from the heart.”

In his keynote presentation, Greitens will share the fundamental philosophy of his life’s work — to be effective in solving problems and live a meaningful life, one must live with both courage and compassion. All attendees will receive a free signed copy of his book, The Heart & the Fist.

Beyond his writing and military career, Greitens has also worked as a humanitarian volunteer, documentary photographer and researcher. He is a Rhodes scholar and CEO of The Mission Continues.

Attendees will also hear from leading industry speakers offering insight and take-aways on tackling the opportunities and challenges at their credit unions.

Attendees have the opportunity to network during a guided tour, reception, and dinner at the historic Biltmore Mansion on May 16. The private tour, exclusive to this NAFCU event, explores the magnificent mansion built by the legendary George Vanderbilt.  Proceeds benefit the NAFCU Political Administrative Fund.
