  • It's a CEO's job to "get out & talk" If the credit union wanted someone to just stay in their office the field of qualified candidates would be larger. A CEO has to be able to speak in public, share ideas, and most importantly, be an ambassador for his (or her) credit union and the credit union movement. This is especially true for mid to large credit unions.

  • It's not just the CEO/CFO types that benefit. I've built a great network of marketing people and use them often. I've saved time and money through these contacts.

  • Part of the CEO job description/contract should be "get out and talk" "broaden the coast-to-coast network"!

  • I just attended a conference for my CU. I wish I had read this article just before, but I think I still did a pretty good job doing what the article points out a subordinate should do for his/her CEO. I thought the last paragraph did a good job of summing this up well. For conference planners, I think this article brings up a good point. A good conference must provide an open forum segment where both the consumers and providers of the "deliverables" can share that brainstorming time and a dialogue can form. However, there must also be some informative sessions (which might be done nearly as well in a webinar) that will draw in those who might not come otherwise.

  • There is tremendous value to CEOs and to others in the system. Interaction in person and being an ambassador are key elements!
