Event in Review - Photo Highlights
In April, Scurry Street partnered with new client Cornerstone League, a trade association for credit unions in the Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas areas, to host their annual meeting at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. More than 700 attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors shared many IMPACT-ful experiences over four days. Here are a few fun highlights from behind the scenes.
“It was our first rodeo with Scurry Street and it went off without a hitch. Thanks for saving our hide with unexpected overflow hotels and making sure we had grub at feeding times," said Vice President, Experiences, Tamra Gaines, CMM, a leader with nearly three decades in the industry who finds value in building a solid support team of partners.
We are thrilled to be working with Cornerstone, and are looking forward to their leadership conference in September. We’ll have another report from the field in the fall!
