2021 Volunteer Week


Published: Mar 26, 2021

Event date: 5/17/2021 9:00 AM - 5/21/2021 10:30 AM Export event

LCUL and MSCUA are excited to announce Virtual Volunteer Week! As credit unions, we rely heavily on our Board Directors and Supervisory Committees and we know that we would cease to exist without your year-round work to keep things operating smoothly behind the scenes. We are excited to bring you the expert training and networking conversations you’re used to along with a few little surprises and vendor sponsored raffles added in for fun.

Each day from Monday, May 17 through Friday, May 21, we will present one educational session from an industry expert. Each session will start at 9am Central (except for Wednesday, which has a 10 am start time) and each will contain lessons and takeaways that benefit board and supervisory committee members and will last no more than 90 minutes. That’s plenty of time to learn from our experts and have time for questions, idea sharing and networking. You can purchase all 5 sessions for a bulk discounted price or pick and choose only the sessions you wish to attend.

Although it’s Volunteer Week, our sessions are not exclusive. If you are a member of your credit unions professional staff and want to join us, we welcome you. Check out our agenda:

May 17 at 9:00 am Central

Some things will change while others will stay the same…The presence of strong volunteer leadership will always create sustainable advantage for a credit union. As we venture into this post-corona environment, new strategies must be deployed. This session will provide a practical road map for knowing when to lead, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way. In the session, you will learn about the following:

  • 2021 NCUA Examination priorities
  • Regulatory Capital Requirements and Growth
  • Implement the Risk Appetite and Risk Tolerance statements
  • Developing measurable strategic goals

May 18 at 9:00 am Central

As the COVID-19 pandemic runs its course in 2021, the economic impacts could be longer lasting. The Federal Reserve’s monetary policy and the Treasury Departments’ fiscal policy will be important economic topics for the next few years. Explore the possible paths of the economic recovery and what impact it will have on credit union balance sheets and income statements for the next two years.

May 19 at 10:00 am Central

Alignment is Not Just for Tires. Credit union boards and committees spend plenty of time in discussion and debate. It’s familiar territory. But what if you could go through a regular alignment process that would reduce friction, increase performance and create a more efficient group? Through the calibration process, boards can quickly and easily map out where members are in relation to each other on critical issues of governance and oversight, then have calculated conversations to make sure that everyone has the same vision and direction for the organization. In this session you will:

  • Learn three evaluation approaches for creating alignment
  • Review common obstacles to alignment & methods for avoiding them
  • Discuss best practices for alignment maintenance.

May 20 at 9:00 am Central

What would you do if your CEO left today? Or if your CEO proposed a merger with another credit union? What would you do if you credit union gets hacked? These are all instances that as volunteers you should have a playbook book for handling. In this session, Ancin will share his experiences as a consultant and examiner and pose situations to the group for discussion to ensure your institution is ready for what lies ahead.

May 21 at 9:00 am Central

Gone are the days of an “annual” review for the CEO. Once a year just doesn’t provide time to give context or to “right the ship.” CEOs want ongoing feedback to make sure CU operations are in line with the board’s vision. The balanced scorecard can help you to provide guidance, feedback and information for your oversight role. There’s no one scorecard that is a perfect fit for all, you must customize this using your values and goals to make it work. Kevin will provide you with the tools and options to create a balanced scorecard that works for you. In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Organize your values for a scorecard
  • Choose the factors that are most relevant
  • Prioritize your options
  • Weigh and balances your goals
  • Discriminate between subjective and objective elements
