PCUA Fall Leadership Conference Is One-Of-A-Kind

Featuring a dynamic and inspiring combination of learning, networking, and fun, the Fall Leadership Conference will be held September 5-7, 2019, at Seven Springs Mountain Resort located in the beautiful Laurel Highlands, Pennsylvania.


James Olson, a former CIA Chief of Counterintelligence, will be kicking off our conference as our first keynote speaker. James will describe his undercover career in the CIA, including how he was recruited, the training he received, the risks he and his wife faced (she was also a CIA operative), and the effect of this undercover lifestyle on their marriage and children.  Mr. Olson will also discuss the role of the CIA in the current Global War on Terrorism and other current issues affecting the safety and security of American citizens.  Finally, Mr. Olson will take the audience on an actual espionage operation he and his wife carried out in Moscow at the height of the Cold War.

Don't miss Mark Sievewright, a highly respected industry thought-leader and a renowned public speaker who has more than 30 years of financial services experience. In his thought-provoking presentation, Financial Services Mega-Trends – Welcome to a Whole New World of Financial Services, you will learn how the U.S. financial services industry is undergoing a transformation that will have a profound impact on how business is done. In addition, we are finalizing the details of our third keynote speaker.


This year’s breakout sessions are divided into four strategic tracks: efficiency, growth, risk management, and service & delivery. Based on our most recent member survey, these four areas are the most common strategic priorities of our credit unions and were created with their priorities at the forefront. See Friday's schedule on the agenda page for more details.

Return to the real world feeling energized, informed, and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.


Our schedule has plenty of networking time too! Spend your Thursday evening with credit union peers, our loyal sponsors, and exhibitors at the popular Brew Pub Fest. The conversation continues Friday afternoon at Solutions Snapchat  – a fast-paced way to discuss your credit union needs and solutions. Don't forget your business cards!
