August 11, 2020: Budgeting post COVID-19
9:00 HST

Title: Revising your budget following COVID-19 Pandemic
Hosted by: Minnesota Credit Union Network
 Kris Jacobsen, Business Development Director, Minnesota Credit Union Network

Session description: Never in history have we experienced change at the velocity we have seen in 2020.  Any and all plans went out the window - including many budgets. Credit unions have had to react and respond to serve members in immediate new ways. So what's next, and how do we start planning again? Budgeting post COVID19 will be critical for credit unions if we are to come out of this pandemic stronger then when we all went in. Join us for a panel discussion with several Minnesota Credit Union colleagues to share ideas and best practices as we work to budget in the new normal. 

August 18, 2020: Know your members
9:00 am HST

Title: Getting to know your members A LOT better and why DEI matters
Hosted by: Wisconsin Credit Union League   
Speaker: Josh Roberts, CCUE, CUDE, VP of System Collaboration & Development

Session description: For credit unions to be effective in serving their communities, they must first understand the diversity in their communities. The focus of diversity, equity, and inclusion are so much more than visible characteristics, and what separates us, but rather what makes our communities better. This isn't a journey that each credit union needs to tackle on their own. Credit unions can partner with community groups, local organizations and other credit unions to help create a path to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization.

In this session, we will:

  • Define diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Understand how to breakdown what the perceived diversity in your communities is and educate staff, boards, and members on the realities of diversity in your community through various resources
  • How to make the business case for DEI and how to make sure your credit union's internal culture matches with your external culture
  • Making sure the credit union isn't just talking about DEI but is instead actively showcasing their efforts
