Online Discovery Conference Widely Embraced
CUNA Mutual Group’s Free, Annual Event Attracted More Than 1,950 Industry Professionals
MADISON, Wis. – CUNA Mutual Group’s third annual Online Discovery Conference on Oct. 9 set a record with 1,968 registrations, including 1,681 from credit unions, 59 from leagues, and 10 from credit union service organizations. The conference gave credit union professionals full control of their experience – from where they attended from to when they attended.
Online Discovery is CUNA Mutual Group’s Web-based equivalent of a face-to-face conference without the associated expenses or time away from the office. The free, online event aims to help credit unions solve problems, face challenges, and address opportunities all from the convenience of their computer.
“If you missed the live event, it’s not too late to participate,” said Christy LaMasney, Online Discovery Conference manager. “You can still access the conference on demand, for free, by simply registering,” she added.
Registration, even after the live event, guarantees access to all conference materials until June 28, 2013. Registrants can view or revisit the 13 credit union-focused sessions, download all conference materials, visit the expo center and network with hundreds of peers by continuing to download virtual business cards for up to nine months at no expense.
The conference’s show prize winner was Kasi Kowal Devinney of Keystone United Methodist Federal Credit Union in Cranberry Township, Pa. Devinney won a free registration to the 2013 America’s Credit Union Conference along with $1,000 for travel expenses. The show prize winner was randomly drawn from a list of 25 attendees who earned the most show prize points through their active participation in the conference.

The Discovery learning model will also be back in its face-to-face format next summer through CUNA Mutual Group’s collaboration with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to bring back Discovery to CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference in New York City, June 30-July 3, 2013. There will be 17 sessions designed for senior management and boards of directors. To learn more watch the America’s Credit Union Conference 2013 preview video.
