"Mayor Booker is a perfect addition to our speaker roster as this year's THINK conference is zeroing in on how to 'Disrupt Business as Usual,'" said Stan Hollen, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, the organizer of the event. "He has marshaled resources and empowered people to revitalize his city and we're looking forward to learning how Mayor Booker is doing it and how we can apply those lessons to our credit unions."
