It’s usually about this time of year when plans for the CUNA YES Summit: Serving 18-to-30s were hitting the home stretch. This year, we’re doing something a little different.
Those who attended the 2008 CUNA YES Summit in Tampa will remember that Courtney, Christopher, and I announced YES would change for 2009 to make sure CUNA better serves the needs of credit unions.
So, for 2009, we are combining the YES Summit with two other powerful events–the Reach Out! Conference and the Community Credit Union Conference–to create the CUNA Community Credit Union & Growth Conference.
Why? Given the current economy and that only 15% of eligible members have actually joined a credit union, we want to provide credit unions the power of three events in one to address significant growth opportunities.
How will your credit union better serve emerging markets such as young adults, immigrants, and the underserved in 2010?
Determine the answers for your credit union by attending this year’s CUNA Community Credit Union & Growth Conference from October 21-24, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ok, so what is it? The CUNA Community Credit Union & Growth Conference is for all credit unions that want to better attract and serve emerging markets.Go to community.cuna.org to learn more and register today.
Join your colleagues to:
- Explore growing members one deposit at a time with Lois Kitsch, National Credit Union Foundation;
- Understand how young board members and directors impact credit unions from Ben Rogers, Filene Research Institute;
- Examine community credit union best practices;
- Learn how to reach out to the largest, fastest-growing, youngest, and most under served population with Warren Morrow of Coopera Consulting.
Where does the YES CU Blog fit in? Just like with the YES Summit, we want to start the conversation early by posting about topics and discussing issues addressed at the CUNA Community Credit Union & Growth Conference. Staying on top of these issues and learning more about them at the Conference will increase the impact of the event. It’s also a great way to keep the conversation going and share resources before, during, and after the event.
So, the YES CU Blog lives on and broadens it’s focus.
