Berger talks CEOs Conference in CUInsight

March 21, 2014 – In an editorial for CUInsight, NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger wrote about the tough decisions faced by credit union executives and how the decision-making process will be a key focus at the association's CEOs and Senior Executives Conference in April.

The conference will take place in Charleston, S.C., from April 1-3, and features keynote speaker Peter Sheahan, the CEO of ChangeLabs, who will present on the four layers of the decision-making process.

"There's never a good time to make a hard decision," Berger wrote. "This year, credit union CEOs around the country have already been faced with many tough situations, especially those arising from the continuing series of merchant-based data security breaches.

"When faced with a tough decision, credit union executives should remember that they're not alone," Berger continued. "Not only can they draw on the strength and resources of their employees to figure things out – but they can turn to the industry as a whole for help."

In addition to Sheahan's presentation on decision-making, the conference will include sessions on a NAFCU survey about credit union CEOs' top concerns, research on what makes credit unions high-performing and the latest on cybersecurity.
