RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (11/3/15)--CO-OP Financial Services will host two “THINK It Out” events in New York in December, providing credit union professionals in the state with an opportunity to learn about new trends in the marketplace related to consumer behavior and technology.
The free events will take place Dec. 1 in Buffalo and Dec. 3 in Albany. Experts will cover the following topics:
“Significant social and technological advances have converged to create a moment in time that is uniquely advantageous for credit unions,” said Stan Hollen, CO-OP president/CEO. “Purchasing decisions by the modern consumer are increasingly influenced by a company’s commitment to both social values and technology tools that center on the interests, behavior and wellbeing of humans. Our one-day THINK It Out meetings will help credit unions better understand the trends at work in the market, and how they can maximize their competitive edge today.”
The events also mark a new step for CO-OP for its work in New York. Earlier this year, the credit union service organization purchased Covera Solutions from the New York Credit Union Association. The Albany-based firm provides its 250 credit union members with credit, debit, ATM and prepaid card solutions.
