Chapter Forum is an exclusive event for League-chapter credit union leaders that promotes learning, leadership, teambuilding, and networking. Participants celebrated chapter achievements and inspired each other to new accomplishments in the coming year.

Chapters started by stuffing backpacks with toys for troubled youth who participate in the services provided by Safe House of the Desert, a local nonprofit helping teenagers to escape dangerous environments. They brainstormed and shared ideas for how they can serve their local communities in the coming year.

Participants also redefined their purpose, working with LEGO Serious Play facilitators to help create a space that fits the overall chapter system, as well as each individual chapter.

Attendees of Chapter Forum always hear from speakers who offer tools to better serve their chapters and their credit union members — full of networking, fostering collaboration, innovative thought leadership, strengthening ties, and a bit of fun! Thursday night was full of food, arcade games, and other activities to bring chapter professionals together.
