CU Water Cooler

“Last Chance,” Cries Benjamin Franklin

Matt DavisComment

Just over 200 years ago, Benjamin Franklin began writing about the CU Water Cooler Symposium. “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing,” Franklin insisted. “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn,” he opined. “A penny saved is a penny earned," he reasoned.

By now, those are famous quotes. But today, after decades of research, we're prepared to announce the heretofore unreleased wisdom recently uncovered from Benjamin Franklin's archives. "If you want to save me, you'll need to register for the CU Water Cooler Symposium by June 30, 2014."

Please don't misunderstand. Although the Symposium would have improved Franklin's life, it is unlikely that the event would have saved it. Historians believe this passage is simply another call for consumers to be thrifty. By registering before the early bird deadline, credit union enthusiasts can save $100—precisely the denomination of U.S. currency featuring Benjamin Franklin's likeness.

Mr. Franklin's foresight was truly amazing. Save money. Register for the Symposium.

Become part of the most powerful and unique event in the credit union space.
