Ken Speaks To FBLA

Ken speaking live to FBLA
Astyra co-founder, Ken Ampy, shared with thousands of people his thoughts on having a bold vision, stepping into greatness and surrounding yourself with good company.
The Midlothian High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) frequently invites Ken to speak to their group. Although this year was no exception, the request was slightly different. 
When the head of FBLA for the entire state of Virginia was looking to hold a virtual meeting, Mrs. Mullins of Midlothian High School called on her favorite speaker once again. Ken spoke at the virtual meeting for a group of FBLA’ers which was recorded then distributed to all of the FBLA chapters across the state.

CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference

Astyra CEO Ken Ampy in the CUNA campaign

Our CEO, Ken Ampy attended the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference (CUNA GAC) in Washington D.C. earlier this week. Board members throughout the nation come to this event to expand their knowledge and discuss current events in the credit union community.

The CUNA GAC also provides attendees the chance to hear from representatives and leaders to reiterate why credit unions are necessary, what challenges they face and how to overcome them.

The event offers different campaigns participants can engage in. Ken was involved in the “Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union” campaign: an effort to raise awareness among the public on the benefits of banking with a credit union.

The CUNA GAC was a great success with over 5,000 attendees which is the biggest turnout to date!
