Board Chair Dan Sutton set the tone for this year’s conference with his opening remarks, commenting on the tremendous value for credit unions to invest in young professional talent and taking pride in the impact made during the Ohio Credit Union Foundation fundraising dinner Monday evening in raising a record-high $12,000 in support of credit union grantmaking opportunities. Chair Sutton also shared a profound message on the aggregate power of credit unions to affect change with decision-makers, consumers, and businesses to fulfill our mission of serving members, stating “When we work together to channel change and innovation through our mission, the unreachable is possible, and the unimaginable becomes reality.”

We also heard from an exceptional panel of credit union champions, League President Paul Mercer, Credit Union National Association President and CEO Jim Nussle, and National Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Gigi Hyland, as well as an inspirational keynote message from Alex Sheen on the impact of promises made and kept. Advocacy, financial well-being, difference-making, and collaboration were other keywords peppered into this year’s conference, brought to life through engaging breakout sessions featuring subject matter experts and leaders in their fields. Credit unions are taking flight, and we are excited to be on that journey with you.

Expanded telemarketing rules impact member outreach

The credit union difference is best activated when credit unions can freely connect with their member-owners without regulatory inference. That's why your League responded to a recent Federal Trade Commission (FTC) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing expanded call records and record retention requirements that would inhibit credit union member outreach efforts. As prudentially regulated, member-owned financial cooperatives, credit unions already comply with a federal and state regulatory framework wrapped around member outreach.
