Deserving of Great Loyalty {Video}

“The credit union movement. It is a great movement, worthy of great deeds, deserving of great loyalty” – Ed Filene

Last week’s CU WaterCooler Symposium in Indiana was proof that while the credit union system is experiencing epic challenges, the spirit of our founding fathers is still alive.

As I watched Matt Davis and Tim McAlpine, two passionate credit union leaders and friends lead two amazing days, I was reminded of another great Canadian / American duo:  Ed Filene and Alphonse Desjardins were progressive thought-leaders and friends who believed the credit union ideal was {worthy of a loyal push}.

They brought ideas from outside the American perspective that challenged the status quo and started a movement.

I believe they would be proud that for two days  we were a movement again, one that continues to challenge itself and is still deserving of great loyalty.

    Another great video Kelley!

    The Symposium was very special this year. Matt and I simply set the stage—it was the editors that put the fantastic speaking roster together and it was the attendees that brought the positive energy. I really thought it was magic. The cool part is that I think it is magic that can be recreated over and over.

    All movements start small. 130 people are now fired up and ready to change the world!

    It was great to see you in Indiana! Thanks for all of your hard work and your very kind words.

    We’ve been resting on our laurels for too long. Events like the Symposium promise to challenge ourselves out of complacency, and refocus credit unions on what’s important: fixing problems for consumers.

    You were such a big part of this event, Kelley. Thank you for your support and, most of all, your friendship.
