2019 Programming



The 35th annual Directors' Forum "Good Governance: The Future of Ontario's Credit Unions" conference will take place October 3 to 5, 2019 at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale.

This lovely venue located at 6750 Mississauga Road has a resort-like feel and is located approximately 15km from Pearson International Airport (it costs about $50 to take a taxi from the airport). There are plenty of restaurants in close proximity to the hotel for our delegates to enjoy!

The decision to change venues for 2019 was due in large part to the feedback we have received over the past couple of years from our delegates. The most recent evaluations confirmed that many felt it was time for a change of venue and scenery. Moving the conference out of the downtown Toronto core also means that we are able to keep the registration fees at a more accessible rate for Ontario Board Directors. 

In keeping with the theme of "Good Governance," the following topics will be discussed at this year's conference:

  • Leadership Continuity Risk in Credit Unions
  • Board Membership Engagement
  • CCUA and the National Credit Union Landscape
  • Risk Management 
  • The Future of Ontario's Credit Unions
  • Board & CEO Recruitment (Board Chairs' session)
  • Director Development & Competencies (alternate breakout session)
  • High Performing Board Barometers (1/2 day CUDA session for .5 CE credit)

Also included in this year's programming is the Directors' Forum Welcome Reception and Annual General Meeting. 

Learn more about the individual sessions below. Session outlines and speakers/moderators/panelists will be added as they are confirmed.

The 2019 Conference materials will be added here once they are available.
