CO-OP transforms Think Live conference in to all-virtual programming for remainder of 2020

More opportunities to THINK! CO-OP to offer three series of THINK Virtual Events

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (June 18, 2020) — CO-OP Financial Services is transforming its THINK 20 Live conference scheduled for August in Dallas into a series of content-rich, highly topical virtual events that will take place over the remainder of the year.

“Due in part to the overwhelming response to our THINK 20 Virtual event, and recognizing that it’s safer for everyone to not travel, we’ve decided to go entirely virtual for THINK in 2020,” said Samantha Paxson, Chief Experience Officer for CO-OP. “In many ways, THINK will be better than ever. Our THINK 20 Virtual event on May 7 had record attendance – nearly four times the highest total for a live conference – and attendee feedback showed a 98 percent interest in future virtual events. And, like the May event, we are offering these upcoming THINK activities to all credit unions at no charge.”

All those who had registered for THINK 20 Live have the opportunity to either receive a full refund on their registration fee or donate it to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. THINK attendees have raised more than $100,000 for CMN Hospitals in six of the last seven gatherings.

THINK Virtual Events

CO-OP is expanding its remaining 2020 event calendar to produce a series of THINK virtual events to help credit unions address the most pressing needs of their members. Offered free of charge, a full schedule will be announced in the coming weeks on three series of THINK opportunities:

  • THINK Forums: Virtual broadcasts designed to address pressing credit union challenges and opportunities featuring renowned guest speakers from outside the industry (two hours each).
  • THINK Master Classes: Topic-specific virtual learning opportunities, including hands-on interactive exercises facilitated by subject matter experts (90 minutes each).
  • THINK Power Lunches: Bite-sized virtual deep dives into a variety of topics important to credit unions right now (60 minutes each).

“Data and insights are changing day-to-day right now, so the fact that all three series will extend over several months will allow us to ensure content is immediate and relevant,” said Paxson. “We will miss seeing everyone in person in Dallas, but we look forward to continuing to bring the transformative power of THINK throughout the rest of 2020, directly to credit union employees, wherever they may be.”
