Early-bird registration for the 2023 conference is open through March 31 at https://www.cufen.org/conference. The price is $695 per attendee. After March 31, the price increases to $795 per attendee. This covers the cost of the conference only, but special hotel pricing can be secured through the Burlington Hilton at a rate of $299.
Darrell Jensen, an attendee at the 2022 conference, said, “CUFEN is making a difference in our industry and is a great resource for financial literacy initiatives. I left with more knowledge and a deeper passion for financial education than I expected. This conference is the credit union industry’s best-kept secret.”
CUFEN, formerly NYIB, has a long-standing reputation for being the standard in financial literacy among credit union organizations. With a delegate footprint in more than 20 states, financial literacy government advocacy efforts, and an executive committee of tenured industry professionals, the annual CUFEN Conference offers some of the most up-to-date financial education resources.
The CUFEN Conference also invites industry vendors like Banzai and others that offer financial education products to showcase their newest programs and technology, allowing attendees a full scope of new partnership opportunities.
Crystal Price, a 2022 conference attendee from Clark County Credit Union in Las Vegas, expressed that she liked connecting to other industry professionals on a more one-to-one level. “This is one of the best conferences I have ever attended,” Price said.
