There are many aspects of the financial services industry that will be forever changed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. One reality that has become clear: credit unions need strategies and plans to move faster so they can adapt to changes in consumer needs and evolving economic and environmental conditions.
Smart organizations are looking for new ways to infuse innovation into their DNA to survive the changes that have happened and lie ahead in our social and economic landscape. Being innovative requires viewing the world through a new lens; this event gives you that view.
And if you think your members don’t care about financial innovations, think again. According to the 2020 Credit Union Innovation Index, 1 in 5 credit union members report that they would be willing to leave their credit union for a bank if innovation was not made a priority.
On August 18, Filene is hosting a virtual event that is all about putting innovation into action. “Exploring New and Novel Ideas” brings Filene’s proven methodology and a 15+ year successful track record of identifying, testing and scaling the best solutions to support credit union growth and member financial well-being.
