Underground celebrates credit unions around the world

Mitchell Stankovic hosts Virtual Collision of the Minds Oct. 15

BOULDER CITY, NV (October 12, 2020) — In true Underground fashion, the Underground Community, powered by Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates, will host its virtual Underground Collision: SHIFT HAPPENS on Oct. 15, 10 am – 12 noon, Pacific Time, to celebrate International Credit Union Day!

“We step in and stand up because we the people are the credit union. I AM a leader, I AM a volunteer, I AM an advocate, I AM a member and I AM a credit union believer!” Host Susan Mitchell proclaimed. “Credit union teams are the credit union! Working with members to support each new world issue, credit unions are fighting for people, small businesses, the underserved, vets, seniors and all Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives. I AM a credit union. I will be standing with you and encouraging Underground thought leaders to be vulnerable, collaborate, be the shining light needed in the world today.”

When SHIFT HAPPENS most people run away, but not credit union people! We’ll tackle the tough issues from around the world with raw conversations and put ideas into action. Our agenda includes:

  • International Credit Union Day – Hundreds of Million Strong
  • Fractured Lives – Fires, Violence, Mental & Financial Health
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
  • Moving at Warp Speed with Technology for Member Service, Revenue and Efficiency
  • Cannabis Grassroots! Issues and Opportunities

Samantha Paxson, CXO Co-op Financial Services, will keynote the October 15th Underground discussing The Primary Financial Relationship: Financial Wellness & Payments = Member Engagement (Growth).  Critical in today’s environment!

Join us as we get real with our Thought Leader Roundtable, including more than 35 thought leaders who will share insight on what matters most to the credit union community and the future of our great consumer movement, tenacious in our fight for credit union members and the business partners who support the credit union movement!
