Madison, Wis. (March 7, 2014) - For credit unions considering a new member business services program, topics were announced today for CUNA Business Lending & Services Conference, July 21-22, 2014 in Madison, WI. Registration and conference details are available at .

CUNA Business Lending & Services Conference offers credit union leaders and decision-makers the opportunity to test the waters and determine whether offering member business services is the right move for their credit unions. Attendees will leave with a firm understanding of the market, insights on what business owners want in a financial institution, in-depth data on the current competition and access to potential product offerings.

"This conference was developed to make sure attendees have all the facts on business lending and services before they make a major decision for their businesses," commented Kathy Smith, Instructional Design Manager, CUNA. "Rather than telling attendees how their business should work, we assemble a picture of what a member business services program would look like within their credit union, and let them decide from there."

This year's expert speakers will walk attendees through the steps of:

  • Establishing a Member Business Services Program
    • Managing a Business Lending Department
    • Cultivating a Commercial Credit Culture
    • Assembling a Competitive Business Product Portfolio

After hearing advice from credit unions that have been in their position and asking experts about the advantages and drawbacks, each attendee will know whether their credit union has the funds, expertise and potential gain to successfully break into the member business services market.
