Net Promoter Score

Disruption ’17 by CU Water Cooler was held on June 6-7, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin. The theme was positive disruption—how the world is changing credit unions and how credit unions can change the world. This was the 7th annual CU Water Cooler event and, by all accounts, it was our best one yet!
