THINK 13 Conference Adds 'Disruption' Panel
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (4/5/13)--CO-OP Financial Services has added "The Disruption Challenge" to the line-up of its THINK 13 Conference events.

The Disruption Challenge pits two debating teams against each other to argue competing approaches to business change and risk. The first team, "Massive Changers," will make the case for swift, dramatic and significant change to credit unions. The opposing team, "Measured Changers," will argue that credit unions will succeed and ultimately thrive if change is implemented incrementally. Attendees will vote for the point of view they think won the debate.

The debate will be facilitated by conference Master of Ceremonies Valerie Coleman Morris, a former business and finance correspondent for CNN, and moderated by Caroline Willard, CO-OP Financial Services executive vice president, markets and strategy.

The two teams include:

Massive Changers

  • Patrick Basler, president, First Financial CU, Chicago;
  • Michael Bell, attorney and counselor, Howard & Howard; and
  • Sarah Snell Cooke, publisher/editor-in-chief, Credit Union Times.
Measured Changers

  • Frank Diekmann, publisher, Credit Union Journal;
  • Jill Nowacki, vice president, development, MAPS CU, Salem, Ore.; and
  • Sandra Scott, vice president, card services and product management, Patelco CU, Pleasanton, Calif.
The debate also will feature a panel of experts. The two teams will ask questions of the panel to help support and illuminate their arguments. The panelists are:

  • Mollie Bell, chief engagement officer, Filene Research Institute;
  • Chip Filson, chairman, Callahan & Associates;
  • Susan Mitchell, CEO, Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates;
  • Brandi Stankovic, partner, Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates.
