To Merge or Not to Merge
Thursday, March 23, 2017

The credit union industry has averaged one merger per business day since 2000. This activity is accelerating with the challenges of insurance assessments, tight margins and dramatically increased
regulatory requirements.

Among the biggest issues facing credit unions when considering mergers is simply how to do it to ensure all of the right bases are touched in a way that results is a strong merger and in a timely manner. What will be the continuing field of membership? What about the Board structure? Does the Hart-Scott-Rodino anti-trust provisions apply in a credit union merger? When should the notices to members be sent? Do the notices have to be pre-approved by the regulators? Can state and federal charters merge? What are
anticipated timelines for completing a merger?

Whether you are considering merger or have potential merger partners for your credit union, please join us in this very timely webinar as we discuss the complete merger process – from
initial negotiations to final merger disclosure requirements.

FOM 2017: What Field of Membership Options are Available
Wednesday, April 26, 2017

In October 2016 NCUA approved a final rule to amend and revise the agency’s field of membership (FOM) rules and regulations. This was welcomed news by many because, regardless of charter type, FOM policy still matters for every credit union in America that wants to grow. After all, new income requires new loans which require new accounts which require new members which require more eligible members which require more field of membership opportunity. The daisy chain of credit union financial success begins with field of membership.

As leading experts in credit union field of membership, former NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar and former NCUA Chief of Staff Kirk Cuevas will walk attendees through the field of membership diversification options available to credit unions in the current environment, including the new provisions recently approved by NCUA.

Don’t miss out on the discussion and insights that this challenging and enlightening presentation will provide. This presentation will give any strategic minded credit union leaders the tools necessary to evaluate and respond to recent changes to the NCUA field of membership manual and analyze the true impact of potential changes on the credit union's goals.

Ten Working Growth Strategies

Credit unions across the country have implemented various strategies and tactics to achieve growth during this period of economic turmoil. Earnings pressures and tight margins have required credit unions to get creative with new growth opportunities to explore. Some of these strategies have been successful while others have not.

Most credit unions desire to know projected and anticipated results of a new strategy before investing time and money in any venture. This webinar, integral to a credit union's planning process, will arm your credit union with ten strategies that are working for credit unions across the country. All ten strategies will likely not be a fit for each individual credit union; however, this webinar will give credit unions options to discuss at their next planning session or board meeting.
