All of our sessions are evaluated to ensure quality, relevance and value for cost. Guest speakers are selected from both within and external to the system for their expertise and ability to contribute to the topics, which are carefully selected to reflect Directors’ unique interests and needs. Delegate feedback consistently confirms that this directors-only conference provides a high value for the cost to attend, to credit unions, caisses populaires and their board members! The annual Forum is also a great opportunity for both new and young system directors, as the learning, mentoring and networking that takes place provides a strong foundation for their role on the board, and enhances their ability to make significant contributions to their organizations.

A Message from the DF Chair



After careful thought and deliberation, the Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the 36th annual Directors' Forum conference to the fall of 2021. The health and well-being of system directors and their families are of utmost importance to us, and it has become clear that hosting an in-person conference this year is not feasible. 

We are happy to announce that in its place, we will be hosting a virtual governance session on Friday, October 16, 2020 under the theme of "Adapting to Meet System Needs." Stay tuned for more details and registration information coming soon! 

In addition to the three-part Director Discussion Series we hosted in June, we are also producing a series of webinars beginning September 2020 and running through to June 2021, as a way to keep Ontario system Directors engaged and informed about important topics that are relevant to their unique roles.
