#CUWCS 2015 Rewind

Tim McAlpineComment

The 6th annual CU Water Cooler Symposium held in Kansas City on October 1 and 2 has come to a close. Each year, we proclaim it to be the best yet and this year was no exception. Thanks to everyone who attended, to all of our sponsors, to all of guest speakers, to all of our editors and to all of our organizers and volunteers. We couldn't do this without you! 

Talking CUWCS on CUbroadcast

Tim McAlpineComment

Matt Davis and I were on Mike Lawson's CUbroadcast a few weeks ago talking about the upcoming CU Water Cooler Symposium happening on October 1 and 2 in Kansas City. This is our 6th annual event and every year we do our best to top the previous year. If you've been before or if you've always thought that you'd like to attend, this is the year. Do it!

You Can PechaKucha Too!

Tim McAlpineComment

In addition to our editors and guest speakers taking the stage at the CU Water Cooler Symposium in Kansas City this year, we'll once again be featuring a number of PechaKucha talks. PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds.

On the Spectrum

William AzaroffComment

I’ve never spoken publicly about autism. I speak at conferences about my work and communities and co-ops and such, but my personal life has never been a source of material. Until now. In October at the CU Water Cooler Symposium, I’ll be speaking about my experience raising a creative, talented, self-aware, anxious, sensitive and sometimes volatile boy who has gained great gifts and terrible burdens from his autism.

CUWCS Talk: Finding the Truth

Laura WoodsComment

I used to think helping people was 99% attitude. You really just had to want to help and inevitably you’d see results. This naivety is what in large part drew me to love the credit union industry. We said we were “people helping people” as so it was, right?
