MADISON, Wis. (5/14/15)--The jointly held CUNA Community Credit Union Conference and the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions 2015 Annual Conference, taking place Sept. 22-25, will leverage the resources of two national organizations.
“As the credit union movement continues to expand--along with the communities it serves--the resources provided by both the federation and CUNA will help attendees develop growth-strategies to move their credit unions forward,” said James Carrick, CUNA learning events vice president.
“Our conference will bring together leading policy makers and practitioners in our industry to forge a path for robust and inclusive financial services delivered through credit unions,” said Pablo DeFilippi, vice president of membership and business development at the federation. “Together we will feature best practices in product innovations, policy and service delivery and share how credit unions can best impact their communities.”
The combined conference will leverage CUNA's nationwide scope and strategy with the Federation's expertise in meeting the financial needs of low- and middle-income consumers to give attendees the tools to reach out to their local communities and foster growth.
During keynote and breakout sessions, industry experts will introduce new approaches to communicating the benefits of credit unions while exploring the best practices for attracting new credit union members.
Plus, this four-day event will give attendees the chance to form lasting peer connections and meet with knowledgeable industry vendors.
