Your Credit Union Weekend Reading Pile, Courtesy of NAFCU

I had the pleasure of spending the week with 350+ credit union directors and supervisory committee members from all around the country. 

There was talk of big data, technology, strategy, and governance. But there was a lot of talk about "why?" 

Why do credit unions exist? Why do credit union officials and employees get out of bed and the morning? We know what we do. But why do we do it?

I hope you can join us next year in Savannah

Now, on to this week's reading pile.
