Just gave a talk on World 2.0 to the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the Massachusetts Credit Union League. It was wonderful to see so many of our Western Massachusetts friends, and the turn-out was fantastic with 120 people representing 13 credit unions. Huge props to Jon Reske, VP of Marketing, at UMassFive College FCU, and the person responsible for my involvment in credit unions today. Jon is an excellent person doing great things for his credit union, which just opened a new branch in Northampton. Thanks for the great introduction tonight, Jon! Also a big thank you to UMassFive College FCU President, Kathy Hutchinson, for inviting me to speak to the chapter, as well as Chapter President, John Buckley, COO, of MassMutual FCU, a charming host. Dave Plantier, President of MassMutual FCU also provided helpful advice. The credit union industry is very very lucky to have these talented and gracious individuals working so hard on their behalf. Also big shout-outs to the other CUs in attendance that we’ve worked with; Jim Nagy and Noella Boileau of ValleyStone CU; Anabela Pereira and Trecia Marchand of Pioneer Valley FCU; and Wendy Tariff, CEO of Wemelco CU. I look forward to keeping in touch with the other credit unions in attendance.
