MADISON, Wis. – CUNA Mutual Group’s second annual, daylong Online Discovery Conference on Tuesday, Oct. 4, makes learning easy by turning credit union professionals into avatars and their computer desktops into a conference hall.

Online Discovery is the Web-based equivalent of a face-to-face conference without the associated expenses, or time away from the office. On the day of the conference, conference participants won’t pick up a badge or registration packet; instead, they will create a profile and virtual business card, and then choose an avatar character to represent themselves throughout the day.

“Conference participants will interact in much the same way they would if they were attending a face-to-face conference,” said Steve Johnson, senior vice president, Marketing & Credit Union Strategy. “Participants will download virtual business cards, click through the virtual Expo Center and chat or message with other conference attendees,” he added.

Take a tour of the virtual conference, and then register for the event. More than 1,100 credit union professionals have registered to date.

“Participants can learn more about the event by following us on Twitter @CUDiscovery and joining in the conversation by tweeting with #CUOnline,” Johnson said.

The conference offers 13 credit union-focused sessions, networking opportunities, including chat rooms and message boards, an exhibit hall and prizes; plus, registration guarantees access to conference materials for up to nine months at no expense.

Online Discovery is CUNA Mutual Group’s free online educational resource for credit union leaders.
