Caribbean Junket for CU Volunteers

If you are a credit union board member, there is nothing like a Caribbean junket in January.

The Credit Union National Association is holding its Volunteer Institute at Melia Carib Tropical at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The dates of the Institute is January 17 thru January 20.

The Melia Carib Tropical is an all inclusive golf and beach resort.

This is nice perk for "volunteer" credit union directors.

Next year credit union directors will be "jammin" in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Check out the description of the resort here.

  1. "Volunteer" math= $10-15,000 per year in "educational" junkets.
    CUNA NAFCU CUES math= "buy" loyalty of CUs thru junkets for "unpaid" boards.
    Powerless to stop it= CEOs of CUs.
    Not represented nor considered= cu "owners".
    CUTimes has an ad this week by a typical CU vendor calling Ensweiler an "industry" icon.
    That ad captures all of the above perfectly.
    "Icon" at bottling up "volunteers".
    And, in the end, what has been accomplished?
