Innovate - Integrate - Motivate

As cooperatives and part of the Cooperative Credit Union Association, Inc. (CCUA), the credit unions of Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and beyond offer members the best value-added services and products that create a stronger financial landscape while building member loyalty, which in turn leads to growth. The mission and values of the credit union industry have stood the test of time and today continue to make a difference in the lives of members.

Join your credit union peers at the Cooperative Credit Union Association, Inc.’s, 2019 Annual Meeting, Convention and Trade Show where we will highlight this year’s theme of Innovate – Integrate – Motivate! This annual event will return to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., one of New England’s finest convention and meeting facilities, October 16-18.


Consider Dyson Ltd, when thinking of Innovation.

Best known for creating the first bagless vacuum cleaner, Dyson surrounds itself with ingenious innovations, some are inspirational, serving as a reminder to strive for the impossible, while others are functional, contributing to a 100 percent renewable electricity supply at their corporate headquarters.

Sir James Dyson, British inventor, industrial designer and founder and chief executive of Dyson, fuels the innovation, saying, “Having an idea for doing something better and making it happen – even though it appears impossible. That’s still my dream.”

Although everyone at Dyson is not an engineer, the company encourages everyone to think like one, to challenge assumptions and tackle the inefficiencies others ignore.


Consider the automobile when thinking of Integration.

While it continues to employ four wheels, a gas pedal, brakes, and steering wheel, today’s auto is light years ahead of Henry Ford’s Model T. From self-driving applications and satellite-based navigation to computerized fuel-efficiency and surround-sound audio systems, the automobile industry strives to employ creativity and imagination as it integrates the latest advances in technology and comfort into its designs and product offerings.


Consider former American football player, coach and analyst Lou Holtz when thinking of motivation.

In 1988, Holtz guided the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame to a 12–0 record with a victory in the Fiesta Bowl, sealing a consensus as being the national champion. Holtz is the only college football coach to lead six different programs to bowl games and the only coach to guide four different programs to the final top 20 rankings.

Compiling a career record of 249–132–7 throughout his years of coaching, Holtz is revered as a master of motivation, guiding and inspiring his players to reach beyond the limits in quest of achieving greatness. His inspirational words continue to motivate and inspire people, whether on or off the field.

“It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.”

“Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.”

The convention program will be content-rich, dynamic and timely with an outstanding group of industry experts, professionals, and regulators to provide thought-provoking concepts, unique insights and valuable data for all attendees. The sessions will feature a volunteer and professional track and incorporate topics for both large and small credit unions.

More than 80 vendors were on hand to greet the more than 500 attendees at last year’s convention Trade Show which served as the networking hub. This year is expected to be even bigger and better. Decision makers will have the opportunity to preview the latest and greatest products and services from companies that understand the importance of supporting the credit union system.
