Freiburg to keynote CUNA Lending Council Conference
MADISON, Wis. (10/2/08)--Author and speaker Kevin Freiburg will discuss how to step up to the leadership plate and choose to become a force for change during his keynote address at the 14th annual CUNA Lending Council Conference, Nov. 2-5 in Orlando, Fla. During “Boom! Seven Choices for Blowing the Doors Off Business-as-Usual,” Freiburg will illustrate how to create a culture of commitment and accountability, one choice at a time. Attendees will learn how to inspire people to assume responsibility for the success of the organization and how to build a reputation for being indispensable. Conference breakout sessions will tackle issues to help lending professionals succeed in current market conditions, including:
* The mortgage meltdown: tools and tactics; * Hot collection and bankruptcy topics in an economic downturn; * Underwriting risk for underbanked and underserved consumers; * Opportunities in mortgage lending; * To do or not to do: indirect vs. direct auto lending; * Home equity lending-risk strategies; * Open-end lending: Reg Z impacts to the credit union; * Mortgage lending strategies for today’s economic environment; * Hottest topics in lending compliance; * Reverse mortgages; and * Building members from indirect borrowers.
A luncheon on Nov. 3 will honor the winners of the Credit Union Excellence in Lending Awards, sponsored by CUNA Mutual Group and the CUNA Lending Council. On Nov. 2, attendees may choose to sign up for a golf tournament at Shingle Creek Golf Club or volunteer at Give Kids The World Village (GKTW) in Kissimmee, Fla. GKTW is a not-for-profit resort for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
