You need to be in Fishers, Indiana on September 29-30 for this year’s CU Water Cooler Symposium.
Not only will Chad be doing a session on best practices for gathering and sharing credit union member stories, but The Disclosures will be playing Thursday night as part of the entertainment festivities. We’ll be playing our original credit union-related songs mixed in with some popular songs you know and love.
It’s a great conference – fresh speakers, awesome speakers and great conversations. Hope to see you there!
You’re probably wondering whether to take us seriously or not. Thrift rock? Filene’s time machine?? That’s okay. Heck, we might even do the same if we were in your shoes. But here are five rock solid reasons you should have no fears and consider hiring us to amp up your next conference or meeting.
1. Credit unions + music = nothing you’ve ever seen
We’re not just another music duo. We are young and passionate credit union advocates who just happen to like music. We could, in theory, deliver a wonderful and straight-forward presentation on credit union history and philosophy. But let’s be serious: you and your staff have seen plenty of bullet points and slideshows. It’s time for a new approach, and that’s what we deliver. Our original songs will simultaneously have your audience learning about credit unions and waving their hands in the air like they just don’t care. It’s like Schoolhouse Rock, but for credit union history and philosophy.
2. Customized presentations – for you!
Although our songs remain the same, we take time to learn your credit union organization’s unique history and philosophy and incorporate that into our presentation. We aim to instill a sense of pride for working and belonging to credit unions and respect for what our movement stands for. Odds are your credit union was born about 70 years ago out of a back room or basement with a mission to put people before profit. Although many things have changed since then, that original philosophy lives on and that’s what our songs help your audience to realize.
3. We bring the thunder every. single. time.
The Disclosures have completely rocked performances at staff trainings, chapter events, league and vendor annual meetings and a CUNA conference with rave reviews. Ask us for references, we dare you. Despite our youthful appearances and light-hearted lyrics, we put in a lot of practice to ensure we meet the high standards you and your credit union deserve.
4. Fun for all ages.
Singing and performing for credit unions is a blast and we let that show during our performances. From directors to tellers, we work hard to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. Maybe we’ll venture out into the audience or take requests (please, no “Freebird”). Whatever it takes, we’ll do everything in our power to leave your group energized and in good spirits.
5. Because the other credit unions bands are all booked up.
And by “all booked up”, we mean “don’t exist yet”. You want to energize your audience with a unique thrift rock experience they won’t forget? Let us at ‘em.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Christopher Morris & Chad Helminak
