MADISON, WI (August 31, 2015)CUNA Mutual Group’s sixth annual, day-long Discovery Conference on Oct. 21, is designed to give credit union leaders valuable industry insight and trends in the insurance and credit union industries.

“Credit unions have told us they need to become more efficient, and grow their membership and market share,” said Mike Defnet, senior vice president of sales and marketing for CUNA Mutual Group. “At our virtual Discovery Conference, credit union leaders have a tremendous opportunity to gain real insights from industry experts and learn what’s ahead. It’s just one of the ways we’re helping credit unions grow and prepare for the challenges of tomorrow.”

This year, CUNA Mutual Group will provide two keynote speakers and eight breakout sessions on topics that span the credit union industry’s current challenges and opportunities. The virtual conference offers senior credit union leaders training and insights on mitigating marketplace disruption; connecting with millennial audiences; leveraging new payment technologies; strategies for membership growth; lending leadership; holistic services; and more.

  • “U.S. Economic Outlook and Its Impact on Credit Unions”
  • “Strategies to Sustain Small Credit Union Growth”
