Musings from the CU Suite

Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Twas the time before budget season,
And all through the land, every CU professional was planning.
Each lady. Each man.

Event pricing? Locations? Where can they be?
Well right here you can find them, said one Anthony D.

Virtual. In-Person. Make it your call.
But plan ahead, plan ahead, plan ahead all!

So, choose your events. Block off calendars. Maybe book a flight.
Merry to all, and to all a good night!


OK, stop groaning, and move on to this week’s reading pile.
