News Release - Register for CUNA Mutual Group's Discovery Conference Today

Free Online Conference Delivers Insights on Data & Analytics, New Research and Generation C

MADISON, Wis. – CUNA Mutual Group’s seventh annual, day-long Discovery Conference is Oct. 18. The virtual, no-cost event offers credit union leaders a chance to learn how to harness the power of data, a sneak peek at new research and valuable industry insight and trends in the insurance and credit union industries, including Generation C.

“Our conference is the web-based equivalent of a face-to-face conference except without any of the expenses and travel time,” said Christy LaMasney, Discovery Conference manager, CUNA Mutual Group. “This enables more credit unions to attend and hear from experts in the field. It’s all about helping credit unions plan for the future,” LaMasney added.

Steven Rick, chief economist, CUNA Mutual Group, opens the conference with a keynote session addressing the power of data and analytics to expand credit unions’ competitive advantage. The session, “Credit Union Data & Analytics: Knowledge IS Power,” provides actionable steps credit unions can take to start or advance their data and analytics journey to capture more business today.

Six breakout sessions will follow the opening keynote covering topics, including gamification, non-prime auto lending, and the U.S. economy. Attendees will learn how Millennials discuss money-related issues and personal finances, discover what compliance issues and risks are lurking in their consumer lending processes and learn how to best serve the sandwich generation.

The conference concludes with a second keynote address given by Brian Sols, principal analyst, Altimeter Group. “Generation C: Your Connected Customer” explores the complexities of a generation of customers not bound by age but by digital behavior. Solis, a world-renowned digital analyst, anthropologist and author, shares insights to show how a shift in perspective can help lead to a more productive and lucrative business future.

Throughout the day, attendees have opportunities to network with industry leaders, pose questions, participate in “hot topic” chats, and visit exhibit hall booths. In addition, all credit union participants are entered to win the grand prize drawing – $1,000 to the credit union’s charity of choice1 – and individuals registered by Sept. 9 are entered to win an Amazon Echo.2
