“There are many people who think they want to be matadors, only to find themselves in the ring with two thousand pounds of bull bearing down on them, and then discover that what they really wanted was to wear tight pants and hear the crowd roar.”
-Terry Pearce, Leadership Coach

This is how I feel after spending the week with nervous CEOs and Board Chairs at the CUES Symposium.

The bull has entered the ring. Are we going to run? Or are we going to fight – for our principles, our members, our history?

We have two weeks to decide. NAFCU and CUNA….only one of you can be in this ring or it starts to look like a circus.

SIDEBAR: CUES did a phenomenal job of “punting’ throughout the week as NCUA, CUNA and NAFCU battled it out. CUES is truly committed to professional development. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this historic conference.
