Directors' Forum

Now in its 34th year, the annual Directors' Forum is a highly unique professional development, education and networking conference and event, that is organized specifically BY credit union Directors FOR credit union and caisses populaires Board Directors. The scope of the Forum has broadened over the years to become a conference and webinar series open to directors from across the country.

Credit unions often use the annual conference as a professional development opportunity for their board members, and to introduce director-candidates to credit union system issues. Credit union managers and staff generally do not participate in the Forum. Registered delegates may vote on issues that are presented during the Annual General Meeting. If a credit union or caisse populaire sends more than one paying director to the AGM, each participant is considered to be a delegate.
