CU*Answers held its 2022 Annual Leadership Conference and Stockholders Meeting on June 15th in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. The event brought together credit union leadership from across the country for a briefing on the organization’s overall direction and major projects for the coming year.
This year’s conference theme was “Our Next Adventure.” The event marked the first hosted by Geoff Johnson, who has served as the organization’s CEO since October 2021. “The last eight months since I became CEO have just flown by. It’s been an exhilarating adventure already.”
He thanked everyone for the support he has received along the way, saying, “although there’s a new face, a new style, and you’ll be hearing from some different voices, it’s the same great team, the same outstanding group of clients and owners, and our CUSO is in the same great financial shape as before.” The word of the day, said Johnson, was evolution. “Our next adventure simply means our CUSO is continuing to evolve, continuing to serve our clients and owners, and continuing to be a force in the industry. We’re rarin’ to go!”
The day-long conference was attended by 147 leaders from 112 credit unions, along with 43 representatives from 25 vendors and 25 internal staff. Joining Johnson on stage were leaders and experts from AdvantageCIO, Network Services, Asterisk Intelligence, AuditLink, and more, as they discussed the latest and greatest in the CUSO’s software and product development.
