Musings from the CU Suite

NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

I'm off to visit Colonial Williamsburg this weekend with the family. I almost can't believe I'm saying this, but I've been in Virginia since 1996 and haven't visited it before. Well, this weekend will fix that problem.  And then it is on to Key West for NAFCU's CEOs and Senior Executive's Conference. I'm looking forward to speaking to everyone to learn what is keeping them up at night. (Both the good and bad.)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
