ICUL hosts BarCampBank unconference
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (12/30/09)--More than 20 individuals from credit unions, leagues and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), plus vendors and a community banker, met earlier this month for BarCampBank, an ad hoc gathering in Chicago to talk about innovations in financial services. The Illinois Credit Union League hosted the event, which was born from a larger BarCamp concept--sharing and learning in an open environment through discussions, presentations and interaction by all participants. All attendees must present a session or lead a discussion or participate in other ways. Participants start with a blank slate and make up the agenda and schedule their presentation at the beginning of the meeting. BarCampBank aims to foster innovations and create new business models in the world of banking and finance. Topics included Introduction to Social Media, Attracting Gen Y, The Next Financial Technologies and Challenges for 2010. Carla Day, one of the event’s organizers said the group is planning another BarCampBank event in the Midwest next spring. Participants are keeping in touch via an e-mail group and social media vehicles such as Twitter (#BCBChi) and the CU Chat Up website community (http://cuchatup.ning.com/). The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, Calif., in August 2005. Since then, BarCamps have been held in more than 350 cities worldwide and focused on many topics and industries. The first BarCampBank event was in Seattle in 2007. Other BarCampBank events have been held in San Francisco and Canada.
