Each year, the CUNA Operations & Member Experience Council and CUNA Technology Council Conference brings in vendors from across the financial landscape for a Speed Round session in which they demo their products.
This year’s Speed Rounds, sponsored by zLinq, gave each presenter five minutes to demonstrate their product before a panel of judges: American Airlines Federal Credit Union Vice President of Operations Brad Askren, Pure IT co-founder and Janusea Inc. CEO Kyle Stutzman, and TwinStar Credit Union Vice President of Technology Service and Solutions Terry Hagio.
Conference attendees voted for their favorite presentation, with the winners revealed during Thursday night’s awards ceremony.
