This year’s 14th Annual Shapiro Summit provided a wealth of information for small credit union leaders on a variety of topics, including updates on the economy, political advocacy, regulations, cybersecurity, loan participations, and a special CEO Roundtable.

More than 50 people attended this year’s summit, which was held Sept. 24 - 25 in Anaheim, CA — hosted by the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues and “Platinum Sponsored” by Catalyst Corporate.

After a networking reception on Friday evening, participants took part in various presentations by credit union leaders and League representatives on Saturday, including experts and officials from Economics, Forensics and Analytics, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), Btech, Catalyst Corporate, Okun and Loritz LLP, Santa Barbara County FCU, Kaiperm CU, and Dow Great Western CU.

“Small credit unions represent the heart of what we do as a movement,” said Diana Dykstra, president and CEO of the Leagues, as she addressed attendees. “This year’s summit could only take place because of the outstanding work each of you are accomplishing in your communities every day. You are doing great things — keep up the amazing work.”

Other sponsors included ASI (American Share Insurance), ESI (Excess Share Insurance), CO-OP Financial Services, CUNA Mutual Group, Totaldocs, and the Richard Myles Johnson Foundation.

After a tumultuous 2020, the Shapiro Summit came back this year offering a unique lineup of speakers and topics to keep small credit unions informed and relevant in a post-pandemic world. The summit is the most anticipated event for credit unions under $200 million in assets.
