Dealing with the Torrent of Conferences

All managers know: There are too many conferences that beckon. Many are worthwhile; some are not. But the very torrent of them is causing a problem. CEOs are expected to know what is going on in the credit union world and what is likely to happen in the future that likely would affect their credit unions. So associations -- and vendors who see credit unions as cash cows -- organize conferences on technology, finances, CUSOs, SEG marketing and more; the list is indeed long. My guess is that if you compared travel and conference spending in 1989 with the same in 1999, you would find a significant increase. But what are we getting for the increase?
