2020 Annual Conference
The Defense Credit Union Industry's Premier Educational Conference
August 9 - 12, 2020 | San Francisco, California


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

DCUC is currently planning to hold our 2020 Annual Conference in August. While both our industry and our country are being affected in many challenging ways, we are working together to provide you with relevant information that is positive, educational and of critical value for your credit union.

The health and safety of our DCUC members is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor all future developments, follow the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our Administration to make the right decision for you, our members.

We know the current situation is difficult, but our nation has been through other crises before and we know that in time we will recover. As a show of good faith, if you register for DCUC 2020 now, and need to cancel for any reason, we will waive all cancellation penalties until June 30th.

We will remain connected throughout this crisis and are looking forward to collaborating together face-to-face once the danger has passed.

THE DCUC CONFERENCE DIFFERENCE

We are the ONLY conference that brings the DoD/Military perspective to credit union issues and where you can network directly with other CEOs, Executives, and other top decision-makers who face the same challenges in serving the military community.

  • ATTEND educational sessions to hear about the latest critical issues affecting Defense Credit Unions.
  • CONNECT with other Defense Credit Unions at meals and events to share professional experiences and gain valuable insights about what’s happening now.
  • NETWORK with our DCUC Sponsors throughout the week to learn about how they can help you improve critical aspects of your business.
  • GIVE BACK and help raise funds the families of this year’s military charity: American Gold Star Mothers.

ALL THIS AND MORE will be part of your experience at the 2020 Annual Conference.

CONFERENCE WITH A PURPOSE


American Gold Star Mothers

This year, in keeping with our goal to support our servicemembers, veterans, and their families in their time of need, the 2020 recipient of our fundraising will be American Gold Star Mothers, Inc.

Since 1928, American Gold Star Mothers has carried forth one singular and noble mission. Their motto says it best: We honor through service.

American Gold Star Mothers are mothers whose children died while in military service, or died as a result of that service, or are missing in action. To keep the memory of their sons and daughters alive, Gold Star Mothers raise funds for veterans, active-duty service members, and their families, as well as other Gold Star families.

/

Here are just a few ways you can help:

  • Donate an item from your credit union to the Silent Auction or choose to make a donation directly from your credit union.
  • Purchase mulligans at the 2020 Annual VADM Vincent Lascara Golf Tournament at the Presidio.
  • Buy raffle tickets for the very popular 50/50 Drawing.
  • Bid on Silent Auction Donations. The DCUC Board will match the funds raised!

 

“One of the best I have attended. All have been good, but this one was great!”
