Due to the significant and ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Student Choice has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person version of Empower U 2020, which was slated for September 23-24 in Pittsburgh, PA. However, because we know that our credit union partners look to this event as a tremendous source of networking and industry knowledge, we are planning a virtual event, and/or series of events, later this year to bring you some of the same information and speakers that you would have experienced at this year’s conference. This format change will also give us the ability to monitor events as they unfold over the coming months, and properly assemble content and speakers that address the most pressing topics. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming months!
