INVITATION From Chairman Joe McGee & President/CEO Patrick La Pine
In the spirit of unity and cooperation, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) continues to work with Alabama and Florida credit unions and CONVENTION & EXPOSITION industry partners to help deﬁne our future. It is in this spirit of teamwork that we invite you to join us for the LSCU’s 2nd Annual Convention & Exposition (AC&E). The beautiful JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes Resort will once again provide the backdrop for this event, to be held June 16-19, 2011. This year’s AC&E will occur Thursday through Saturday, a change in rotation from our traditional Wednesday through Friday dates. We have made modiﬁcations to the schedule to accommodate the change in rotation, and credit union oﬃcials and staff will participate in three days of relevant and informative activities that can be utilized for optimal performance and success. Be sure to register and make travel arrangements early, as the hotel has regularly sold out weeks prior to the conference. Here is a glimpse of some of the scheduled events: ■■ One Full Day of Pre-Conference Workshops ■■ Two Full Days of Concurrent Educational Sessions ■■ Six Exclusive Exhibit Hall Hours ■■ Offsite Guest Tours & Specialty Classes ■■ Annual Golf Tournament Beneﬁting Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) ■■ Silent Auction to Beneﬁt CMN ■■ Gala Dinner & Entertainment Additionally, exhibitors and sponsors play an important role in making this event a memorable experience for participants. There will be ample time to visit the Exhibit Hall and network with exhibiting and sponsoring companies, so take a moment to plan out your time to ﬁnd solutions that can help your credit union better serve your membership.

GENERAL CLOSING SESSION June 18, 2011 | 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Politics & Morning Joe JOE SCARBOROUGH
One of America’s most respected political commentators, Joe Scarborough shares with audiences his trusted insights on today’s political and policy headlines. A former member of Congress and the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Scarborough provides an unparalleled analysis and engages in a lively question-and-answer session on the stories that matter to your audience. Looking ahead, Scarborough evaluates how the Obama Administration is working with a divided Congress and what it all means for the 2012 elections.
About the Speaker Former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.) along with Mika Brzezinski, is the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, a show Time magazine calls “revolutionary” and The New York Times ranked as the top news show of 2008. Morning Joe features interviews with top newsmakers and politicians, in-depth analysis of the day’s biggest stories and is described by The New Yorker as “appallingly entertaining.” Previously, Scarborough hosted Scarborough Country, a primetime news show the San Francisco Chronicle called “must-see TV.” In addition to his career in television Scarborough is also the author of The New York Times Best Seller The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America’s Promise, a book that draws on the forgotten genius of conservatism to offer a road map for the movement and the country. Delivering a searing indictment of the political leaders who have led us astray, Scarborough inspires conservatives to reclaim their heritage by drawing upon the strength of the movement’s rich history. Prior to his career in television, Scarborough was the publisher and editor of the award-winning newspaper The Florida Sun. He served as a member of Congress from 1994-2001. While in oﬃce, Scarborough was a member of the Judiciary Committee and the Armed Services Committee. He was a part of a small group of Republican congressmen the National Journal said possessed a surprising amount of power given their youth and lack of years in Congress. His 2004 book Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day predicted the collapse of the Republican majority and US economy due to his party’s reckless spending.
Transport into Stronger Business Performance June 16, 2011 | 4 PM – 7 PM June 17, 2011 | 3 PM – 6 PM In space time, a wormhole transports a traveler between different universes. At the LSCU AC&E, our wormhole will take attendees from the present to a future of proven business solutions. In a world ﬁlled with unknown parallels and opportunities, the Exhibit Hall provides innovative discoveries for a revolutionized future with more than 130 exhibitors. This year features two parallel destinations. On Thursday, an exclusive Exhibit Hall CEO Invitation event from 4pm – 5:30pm offers an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and the opportunity to network for invited participants. The Exhibit Hall will open for all conference participants from 5:30pm – 7pm. On Friday, June 17, a three-hour Exhibit Hall Happy Hour will engage and amaze participants with afternoon snacks, a cash bar, and entertainment with the opportunity for all Convention participants to network with exhibiting companies. This year will also feature the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a chosen exhibitor of your choice from 10am – 3pm on Friday. All you need to do is ﬁnd the exhibitor and schedule an appointment with them during the Thursday CEO Invitation. This is a great way to review a contract, discuss goals, participate in a product demonstration, or conduct other business during the Convention!
These sessions are premier networking opportunities with more than 1100 participants!
The opportunity to participate in a full day of pre-conference workshops and two full days of concurrent educational sessions exists for attending member oﬃcials and staff. You will learn timely and relevant information that you need to perform more eﬃciently and effectively.
