What’s The First Rule Of Symposium?

You don’t talk about Symposium!

OK. So that’s not really a rule. Even so, I think you’d find that not a lot of people do talk about the CU Water Cooler Symposium. They Tweet about it. It has been said that if you are not on Twitter, then this is not the event for you. While you are free to agree or disagree with that statement a lot goes in to making the CU Water Cooler Symposium very social centric. While we definitely want you to personally attend this awesome event, if your physical person can’t be there make sure your virtual one is.

The venue is limited to 144 seats and we're getting close to selling out, but there's still time to secure your spot. Tickets are $499 and If you are a credit union employee, use the promo code "cuemployee" and you get $100 off. For an even deeper discount, round up two friends and your ticket will cost only $333.33. Head over to the Symposium page to secure your ticket.

#CUWCS is a great place to start. Here you’ll find several of the attendees and editors sharing things that have inspired them about each talk. It’s an ideal way to be a part of the conversation as an attendee or just as a stalker.

As an attendee, Twitter is also your one-stop-shop for connecting with other Symposium goers. Don’t be that person that attends a credit union conference and hangs out in their hotel room all night. We’ll be in one of the most fun towns in America. Get out and enjoy it!

Our venue is right in the heart of downtown Nashville on Broadway. Hands down one of the most popular streets in the country. From eating BBQ at Jack’s, karaoke at Wanna B’s, singing with a band at the Honky Tonk, and riding a mechanical bull at Tequila Cowboy, I can tell you there is no shortage of things to do. But to help you meet friends and point you in the right direction, we will be coordinating a Symposium Kick-off Tweetup.

Attendees are invited to the Symposium Kick-off Tweetup on Wednesday, October 16 at 6 p.m. at Honky Tonk Central. This three-story venue is within walking distance of almost every hotel in downtown Nashville and is the perfect destination for weary travelers to meet, drink and have a little fun before the Symposium begins. Be sure to follow your resident Tweetup guides Sara Dyer @saradyer, and myself @ames322 for all the details.

Shine those belt buckles and put on your cowboy boots… I can’t wait to see you all in Nashville!
