The Co-operative Bootcamp - Become Fluent in Your Unique Business Model & the Credit Union Brand. This interactive bootcamp will dive into important conversations for credit union leaders & aspiring leaders. What does it mean to be fluent in co-ops and credit unions? Get comfortable and conversational about the credit union brand. Deepen your pool of responses to the question: "What is the credit union difference?" If you work with staff, members, in marketing or governance, the language we use to talk about our CUs and our priorities impacts everything we do. This session will bring clarity as participants define their unique value proposition and build fluency in sharing about their credit union/work.
A Question of Relevance - Redefining the Relationship between Youth and Financial Cooperatives. While digital financial services are essential, credit unions can do more to increase their relevance with youth. We can be more intentional. We can invest more. We can be a force for empowerment. We must do more; our future depends upon it.
