BOOM! 7 Choices for Blowing the Doors off Business-as-Usual

Kevin Freiberg,

There is a revolution under way! It's a revolution of people who refuse to be victims and choose to take charge of their lives at work. Those of us involved in this revolution are committed to playing at FULL THROTTLE! We are convinced that this is our moment—a moment when the world is ready to reach beyond the mediocrity of Dead People Working™ and blow the doors off business-as-usual

Last Man Down: A Fireman's Story

Richard Picciotto, Retired NYC Fire Chief

In a presentation modeled after his best-selling book, Last Man Down, FDNY Chief Richard Picciotto offers a tribute to the lives that were lost that day. His recount is not one of death and destruction, but a celebration of life and its unpredictable nature. Picciotto offers an eyewitness account of the defining historical event of our lives; his story is that of a man, a hero, and a tragic event that inspired a nation.


Growth Strategies

Bob Hoel, Filene Research Institute

“How can our credit union grow in an increasingly competitive environment?” has become the number one question across the nation. It is becoming much more difficult to grow membership because financial consumers are less willing to switch financial institutions. Simultaneously, it's more difficult to grow assets because members have so many choices and competition is fierce.

This session examines credit union success strategies and innovations for attracting and serving growing market segments like young adults, immigrants, small businesses, and aging baby boomers. It identifies events where households are most willing to change financial institutions. It focuses on developing new strategies and revising old ones to (1) expand your loan portfolio, (2) build your deposit base, and (3) generate fee income.

What people said about past Lending Conferences...


- · I walked away with so much great information from the CUNA Lending Conference. They say that a successful conference is when you walk away with one great idea. I walked away with about 10 and can't wait to share them with others at the Credit Union.

- The Lending Council Conference is a great opportunity to share experiences, resources, and knowledge with a community of lenders from Credit Unions of all sizes. It truly embraces the credit union philosophy of "people helping people".

- · The CLC conference is the best education and networking opportunity available to credit union lenders.
