How can Credit Unions Ride the Economic Wave of Opportunity to Foster Growth?

CU Learning TRAXX9/1/2020

The unprecedented events of this year have left no industry untouched, including credit unions. Predicting what may be in store can feel like a guessing game. Credit unions are re-aligning priorities to thrive in this new environment and are wondering, “What lies ahead? What are the next best steps to meet members where they are now?” Next week’s CU Learning TRAXX sessions will dive into this and other timely issues.

CFOs, CEOs, credit and investment officers, and accounting professionals can join the upcoming Financial Strategy session, Maintaining a Growth Trajectory in Troubling Times, to hear from Darius Mirshahzadeh, author of upcoming book, “The Core Value Equation: a Framework to Drive Results, Create Limitless Scale, and Win the War for Talent.” Mirshahzadeh is an entrepreneur and former CEO of The Money Source, a nationwide technology-driven mortgage company. He’ll shed light on how leaders can build core value-driven organizations that will withstand even the most tumultuous times. Participants attending the live session will be able to earn one CPE credit.

The last Financial Strategy session, Point-Counterpoint, is now available for on-demand streaming.

Elevate Your Community Impact

Credit unions are also re-examining ways they can better connect with and serve their communities, especially as the economy remains unpredictable amid COVID-19. By building strong community partnerships, credit unions gain a deeper understanding of the challenges facing members and non-members, alike. CEOs, CMOs, community outreach professionals, financial educators, and CUDEs won’t want to miss the next Community Impact and Financial Health session: Building Meaningful Partnerships for Localized Solutions.

Speakers Kathy Saloy, Chuck Morse, and Kevin Cole will explore ways credit unions can forge new and deeper partnerships with public, private, and philanthropic partners to identify solutions to challenges facing their communities.

Saloy is Vice President of Community and Economic Development for Hope Enterprise Corporation, based in New Orleans, Louisiana; Morse is the Executive Director of LaunchNOLA, a small-business development nonprofit organization in New Orleans, Louisiana; and Cole is the Executive Vice President of Mid Oregon Credit Union, based in Bend, Oregon. Together, they’ll touch on key topics, including credit building, serving rural communities, equitable access to financial services, and more.

The first Community Impact session, Shifting to Recovery: Developing Data-Driven Strategies to Impact Member Financial Health, is now available to stream on-demand.
