Boy, that is a lot of travel coming up. There are a couple more events in the Spring and Fall that I am considering, but I have to weigh them with all of my other business and family commitments.

I can't wait to meet up with all of my credit union friends and to meet new friends as well. If you are attending any of these conferences, please let me know. I love to connect with like-minded credit union advocates. I am also looking for folks to interview for our Credit Union Innovators podcast while I am on the road.

As each event gets closer, I'll give some more details.
