The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues’ annual REACH 2022 Golf Tournament gave those who started their week’s adventure on Tuesday an early taste of the annual convention — a week full of networking, fostering collaboration, friendship, innovative thought leadership, strengthening ties, and a bit of fun.

More than 100 credit union leaders participated in what some say is one of their favorite golfing events of the year on the grounds of the JW Marriot Desert Springs Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Desert, CA.

The event brings together colleagues and friends who have known and worked with each other for several years to experience a one-of-a-kind bonding experience leading into the credit union industry’s premier annual event for California and Nevada.

The Leagues would like to congratulate the winners! Everyone who participated put their best foot forward for the credit union cause, with the following individuals claiming this year’s winning titles:

Golfers had the opportunity to unwind as they displayed their skills “on the green.” The exciting kick-off event is always an opportunity to regroup with fellow peers in the credit union industry, as well as business partners who support the credit union system, philosophy and values. New connections are made and old friendships were rekindled before attendees embarked on their exciting week ahead!
