Speaker: Jim Nussle, President & CEO
Nussle will focus on the future of CUNA, how interdependence between CUNA and the state credit union leagues is essential, and why advocacy is critical for the credit union movement. CUNA is the largest and most influential national financial services trade association in the country and the only one that represents all of America's credit unions and their 110 million credit union member.
Speaker: Ryan Donovan, Chief Advocacy Officer
Advocacy is a process not an event. CUNA's Chief Advocacy Officer, Ryan Donovan, will discuss the progress credit unions have made in public policy sector, the challenges they continue to face and why it is more important now than ever that those most invested in the success of credit unions are asked to engage in advocacy.
Speaker: Steve Rick, Chief Economist
The presentation will discuss how the global economy, the overall financial sector and the Federal Reserve will affect the U.S. economy, U.S. interest rates and ultimately credit union balance sheet and earnings performance. Steve Rick will analyze and establish standards against which your credit union's own performance can be measured. Mr. Rick will also identify trends of savings and loan activity, and weigh the influence of future economic events on growth patterns out into 2018.
Speaker: Korinne Collins, Vice President of Professional Development & Education
The Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) completed a research project with York University's Schulich School of Business to identify the profile of a top performing credit union director. The results of the study developed the Credit Union Director “DNA”.
In this session, Korinne Collins will share the components of the Directors DNA and discuss the implications. This session aims to stimulate a dialogue that should take place at every credit union board table and an opportunity for each volunteer to consider areas of personal development opportunity.
Speakers: David Reed, Partner and Diane Reed, President
This interactive session will reinforce the concept of proactive planning for known trouble spots. If the board of directors anticipates a potential problem and crafts a policy to address the core issue in advance, when the problem erupts they can focus on the issue and not the individual. Through real-time survey tools, you will see instant results from their peers on the scenarios discussed.
The scenarios will include:
Speaker: Christiane Gigi Hyland, Executive Director
When almost half of the population can't come up with $400 in the case of an emergency without putting it on credit or selling something, we have a problem. These national statistics mean that our members and our employees are struggling financially. This session will explore how credit unions can get insights into their members' financial health and take concrete actions to truly move the needle on improving people's financial lives.
Speaker: Stacie VanDenBerghe, CEO
Most credit unions are focused on day-to-day operations and don't take a second to investigate ways in which other industries are working more efficiently and effectively to maximize performance. Stacie VanDenBerghe will analyze the ways in which industries are changing around us and what it would take for us to adapt to the changes. You will learn how to help your credit union bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to reinvent operations and tackle daily tasks.
