AC&E, State GAC, CFPB Training, INSIDE Credit Union Compliance 



Excitement continues to build with hundreds of attendees registered to attend the MCUL & Affiliates Annual Convention and Exposition taking place May 16-18 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The event features dozens of training sessions, including a presentation by a CFPB representative. New York Times bestselling author and Michigan business entrepreneur Josh Linkner, who has penned Disciplined Dreaming, will deliver the Friday, May 17, keynote address on "Executing Imagination: Turning Creative Fire Into Real Results." Steve Gilliland, author of the bestselling book Enjoy The Ride™! will be on hand as the Saturday, May 18, keynote speaker delivering "You Make the Difference." Gilliland has built a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up on the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences. "If you take care of people, the business will follow." Guests are encouraged to join attendees and may enjoy special activities such as an offsite tour and luncheon at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, a jewelry workshop, enrichment sessions and creating a scented keepsake. Attendees and their guests will also enjoy the option of attending an afternoon cruise aboard the Ovation Yacht and the Saturday night closing event at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle.
