Hear how a unified government presents both opportunities and challenges as we advocate for credit unions. We'll touch on:
Every one of your products, services and delivery channels are covered by multiple laws, rules and regulations. And, with every rule comes potential risk of a compliance violation or costly litigation. We'll talk through pressing matters of regulatory compliance and you'll leave with best practices your organization should deploy. Our panel of professionals will also provide updates on litigation “hot spots” and their potential effect on credit union operations.

Real-time payments are commonplace in many countries, but have been slow to roll-out in the U.S. The panel discussion will explore the current state of play, various use cases and factors credit unions should consider in determining how and when to implement real-time payment solutions.
Panelists include The Clearing House, a leader in this space, the Federal Reserve System, with plans to launch its FedNow alternative by 2023-2024, and Nacha, who continues to speed the delivery of ACH payments with multiple same-day windows.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a business imperative for all credit unions. Explore how DEI positions credit unions for success, strengthens our advocacy efforts, and helps advance financial well-being for all-one member at a time.
Seismic demographic shifts and the resulting “lower for longer” interest rate environment mean longstanding economic assumptions, relationships and metrics are less relevant. Instead, politics and the political climate have assumed increasing importance.
In an environment characterized by crisis, uncertainty and increasing complexity, these trends are magnified. And for many members, financial well-being has declined dramatically during the pandemic, and at the same time borrowing and credit union operating results have fundamentally changed. In this session, CUNA's Chief Economic Officer Mike Schenk and Senior Economist Jordan van Rijn will explore these themes and their implications for credit union operations in 2021 and beyond.

With many credit union boards and legislators holding virtual meetings it may seem more difficult for volunteers to advocate for credit unions during the pandemic.

This panel will feature three credit union board members and we'll discuss some best practices on advocating in a virtual and socially distanced environment.

You've heard of CULAC, CUNA's federal PAC, but just what is a PAC? How does it work? How does it help advance our credit union advocacy agenda? Hear from the team of experts behind CUNA's nationally-renowned political action program for an inside look at how CULAC, CUNA and Leagues are delivering advocacy wins for credit unions in the political sphere.
Congress created the credit union charter with an express mission to: Promote thrift among members and create a source of credit for productive and provident purposes. Today, credit unions deliver on that promise with a laser focus on improving financial well-being for all.
The business case is obvious: Improving member financial health produces more loyal members, stronger communities and more successful, resilient credit unions. The need is great - and growing - as the global pandemic rages and policymakers increasingly want proof of credit union mission fulfillment. What are members facing? How can your credit union more effectively deliver on its ability to change lives? How can we better communicate the difference we make? This panel explores these questions and outlines the growing national conversation on impact and mission fulfillment.
Delivery of financial services is evolving with innovations emerging from credit unions, banks and non-bank technology firms. The current regulatory framework was not designed to address today's models, leaving loopholes in existing laws and regulations. This creates opportunities for non-bank firms to deliver “bank-like” services without the guardrails and protections consumers take for granted.
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is accepting applications for “special purpose charters” conferring banking rights without the typical regulatory and compliance requirements of a national bank. This session will consider the range of these models, their associated risks, and CUNA's strategy to ensure that non-banks offering financial services face a level playing field.
