Everyday you are surrounded by a flurry of staff requests, members that need your help, endless emails, system failures and more hats than you can keep track of. The little “fires” you put out all day stop you from thinking strategically and planning for growth.
The new competitors in the financial landscape and the giants bring new technology and often get to bypass the regulation that credit unions adhere to. The community still has underserved and underbanked. Payday lenders prey on those that do not know better, but still the credit union loses members or struggles to grow assets.
With small credit unions going away, rural communities and underserved markets are in jeopardy of losing their financial advocates. Many smaller credit unions who strive to serve their communities and fill the gaps left by larger financial institutions aren’t aware of the resources available that can help them better serve their members and the underserved communities.
A network of industry partners who can provide services to small credit unions that can inspire them to seek alternatives to mergers, and provide the support needed to continue operating, but also to grow and thrive.
One credit union under $100 million in assets will be chosen for all industry partners involved in this project to receive services free of charge. A holistic plan will be produced specifically for the chosen credit union and each partner will work together to create a strategic plan and individually as needed to fulfill the project scope.
The credit union CEO and board chair must sign off on the submission together, acknowledging that they are open to growth, and very open minded to the ideas that may be presented.
Fill out the application and we highly encourage you to upload a video to tell us why you want to participate or show us around the credit union.
