Directors & CEOs: Convention gives you the edge

Today's competitive financial services market requires extraordinary vision & leadership. You can rise to the occasion but only if you know what issues, risks and opportunities will make or break today's financial providers. Gather at The League's 79th Annual Convention & Exposition May 8-11 at the Kalahari Resort to consider key issues facing today's top execs and directors.


Topics include:

  • Asset/Liability Management (ALM) Model Case Study - What Can We Learn from Savings & Loan History. During the S&L crisis of the late 1970s nearly half of all S&Ls went belly up. What were the causes? Could the ALM model of today have predicted or prevented this outcome? Apply it, guided by The League's Sr. Consultant Bill Rockeman, and find out!


  • Review of the Exam Process. Keith Morton of the NCUA and Ginger Larson of the state Office of Credit Unions walk you through the role of examiners, what they expect, how their focus has changed in 2013 and some dramatic improvements that are being made in the exam process to help improve the working relationship and increase safety and soundness.


  • Directors & Chairmen's Circle. Some decisions need to occur beyond the involvement or input of your credit union's CEO. This session - exclusively for board members and guided by The League's Bill Rockeman & Jim Drogue - looks at some of their most challenging responsibilities: overseeing risk management, being politically involved, deciding whether CEO and officer compensation should be made public or kept private, liability issues, recruitment and more.


  • Enterprise Risk Management. Credit unions need to have processes in place, as well as a culture, that proactively identifies, measures and manages risk to ensure credit unions seize opportunities and adjust to negative events. Ann Davidson of CUNA Mutual Group shows you how ERM integrates all risk efforts under one set of definitions, processes and system solutions.


  • Compliance Overview for Directors. League Legal Affairs Counsel Paul Guttormsson explores recent and upcoming regulatory changes and what directors can do to help their credit union stay in compliance.


  • Turning Today's Consumer Insights into Tomorrow's Business Success. It's difficult to distinguish your credit union when competitors are offering similar products and services and use comparable technology. David Polet of CUNA Mutual Group shows you how consumer insights offer a clear picture of priorities that can distinguish your credit union and drive its business success.


  • Corporate Central Update. Chris Felton of Corporate Central Credit Union invites you to this meeting that will update Corporate Central's member credit unions on recent developments such as derivatives transactions to offset interest rate risk, investment and deposit activities; remittance rules for foreign electronic funds transfers; and maintaining access to a federal backup emergency liquidity source. Learn how Corporate Central has positioned solutions and is preparing to assist with these rules.
