Just had a fabulous lunch today with the very lovely Lisa Hochgraf, editor of CUES TechPort. We had much to discuss, including credit unions, branding, technology, strategy, the Triple-B Baltimore event, and traveling with little boys. (Lisa has a two-and-a-half year-old Robert.) Lisa was born in New York, grew up in Madison WI, and now lives in New York again. Lisa works remotely from Rochester for CUES (Credit Union Executives Society) which is HQ’d in Madison. She told me that one other CUES editor works remotely… and that is Theresa Sweeney Witham, who works out of Baltimore of all places!
We had lunch at Cole & Parks… a very cute little restaurant in Rochester, New York. Not only do they have great coffee, sandwiches, and cookies, you can also order a gift box of cookies, and the cookies can have your logo on them!
After lunch, Lisa was kind enough to show me a stretch of the Erie Canal. What an amazing feat of engineering!
