CREDIT UNION EVENT SPEAKERS & PRESENTATIONS

Credit Union Benefits & Impact: Methodologies, Issues, Data History

Description: Credit unions provide large and growing economic benefits to both their members and the communities they serve. However, measuring these benefits and impacts is not always straightforward.

Learn about the complex issues involved, the techniques that may be used to quantify credit unions’ roles in the financial lives of American consumers, and how benefits and impacts have grown in recent decades.

Appropriate Audience:

CEOs, Board Members, Strategy, Operations, Finance, Marketing, Lending, Business Development

Presenter(s): Sam Brownell or Luis G. Dopico

Hacking Field of Membership

Description: Gain the tools needed to conquer the battlefield (of membership). FOM restraints negatively impact all credit unions, whether by limiting your total addressable market, lowering online application conversion rates, decreasing ROI on marketing, or simply because it confuses consumers.

This session discusses how to “hack,” or mitigate, the negative impact field of membership has on your ability to grow and includes:

  • How to expand your field of membership to match strategic goals;
  • How to increase your online application conversion rates;
  • How to market exclusively to consumers who are eligible to join your credit union (regardless of your FOM);
  • How to reduce the cost of member acquisition;

Mergers & Acquisitions

Description: Financial consumers launch, join, and use credit unions to serve financial and social goals. In turn, credit unions are launched, thrive, and sometimes close.

Learn about long-term data on credit union formation, liquidation, and mergers, including how targets, acquirers, and non-merging credit unions compare across asset sizes, across relative sizes (e.g., mergers of equals vs. absorptions), and over time. Also discover the historical, average impacts of mergers across key performance metrics such as non-interest expenses, interest rates charged and paid, and growth.
