Following a brief welcome from CUANY President/CEO William J. Mellin, the forum kicked off with a presentation from John Lass, CUNA Mutual Group's senior vice president of strategy and business development.
 
Lass highlighted emerging threats posed by non-traditional financial institutions and new payment technologies expected to make an impact in the coming years. He also encouraged credit unions to look for growth opportunities by focusing on member needs, instead of on specific products or services.
 
Following Lass' presentation, attendees chose among concurrent breakout sessions led by industry experts on economic outlooks, asset/liability management trends and loan portfolio risk management strategies.
 
The second morning began with a presentation by Dr. Barry Asmus, a senior economist with the National Center for Policy Analysis. Asmus offered a positive outlook on the U.S. economy and focused on the resurgence of American manufacturing and production, said CUANY.
 
The forum concluded with a lighthearted presentation from keynote speaker Steve Gilliland. A credit union board member, bestselling author and Speaker Hall of Fame inductee, Gilliland encouraged the group to rediscover their passion and "enjoy the ride." Lead sponsors of the forum included CUNA Mutual Group, CO-OP Financial Services and CU Direct.
