CU*Answers plans new strategic planning event for credit union CEOs

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (June 6, 2018) — Planning began today for a new event to be held by CU*Answers for its credit union clients, to take the place of the annual CEO Strategies conference that has been held in the fall for the past 13 years. The 2018 CEO Strategic Developers Boot Camp, scheduled for November 5-9, 2018, will signal a new opportunity for CEOs and their business development executives to participate in creating the solutions that CU*Answers and the network will take to market. The event will bring credit union CEOs and senior-level executives who have a builder’s soul together with CU*Answers strategic leaders and designers to build a future that is based on what CUSO participants all want to own and use.

Topics being planned include Designing the Future of Internet Retailing, Designing Teller Platforms for Our Future, and Designing the Future for Online and Mobile Tools. Randy Karnes, CU*Answers CEO, stated that this event was intended to evolve the concept of a boot camp, which has been a very successful format for the CUSO over the past couple of years, to target directly credit union senior executives for this new event. “We want to marry the drive of credit union designers with cooperative-owned designer resources, to engage strategy-makers to actually build something, not just talk about what they want,” said Karnes.
