LAKE FOREST, IL (December 5, 2017) — Go CU Cards, one of the leading credit union credit card consulting firms announced today its 2018 School of Credit Card Program Management schedule (SCCPM). The five-city tour is hosted by seasoned credit card expert and founder Ondine Irving, and spans coast to coast, featuring stops in California, Illinois, South Carolina and Florida.

The SCCPM educates credit unions on new trends in the credit card industry and cost-effective methods to enhance portfolios. It is designed to assist with portfolio performance including best practices and proper management of financial, operational and marketing functions, maximizing profitability.  Some topics covered include product structure and rates, RFP Management, loyalty programs, and so much more.  Ondine has also revamped the CardWars Manual for 2018, including new topics such as credit line increases and re-issue criteria.

Ondine will return to cities such as San Diego and Charleston – where she experienced the largest attendance in SCCPM history.  “I am looking forward to our 2018 locations – San Diego, Boca Raton, Chicago, Charleston and Napa!  New cities allow us to interact with local credit unions that have never attended before” Ondine said. “I am also looking forward to continued open discussions and attendee interaction with processors, reward providers, brands and others. You won’t find this type of class anywhere else” she added.

Ondine requests attendees bring along card processing invoices and card portfolio data to review in class.  “In addition to the regular curriculum, SCCPM offers in-class, hands-on exercises, where we take a deep dive into the core of the portfolios of attending credit unions” said Ondine. “It is important that we personalize each seminar making it interactive, unique and educational” Irving added.

“I attended Ondine’s School of Credit Card Program Management in 2017.  You won’t be disappointed; the school is jam-packed with information and real-life solutions you can take back to the office and implement right away” said Andrea L. Brooks, VP Risk Management at UNCLE Credit Union.  More testimonials can be found at www.GoCUCards.
