Morning Session: The Next Generation of Payments: The Future is Now

There is an urgent need for U.S. Payment Providers to position EMV and Mobile technology as strategic imperatives.

Have any of the following questions been addressed at your credit union?

  • What is EMV?
    • How is it used outside of the U.S.?
    • Why are we talking about it now?
    • What are the liability shift timelines for issuers and merchants?
    •  What are the key benefits (reduced fraud and loyalty/usage uptake)
  • What is our strategy related to EMV?
  • Do we agree it’s important?
  • Do we think the time is right to think about reissue on a mass or rolling basis?
  • How long would it take to be ready?
  • Have we discussed a mobile payments strategy?
  • Are we concerned about losing transactions?

To address these issues, we are pleased to present a Retail Payments Strategy Discussion. The program will feature an overview of EMV and Mobile Technology and how they will affect your short- and long-term retail strategies.

Afternoon Session: Payment Systems Legislation & Regulatory Compliance

Given the current credit regulation tenor and speculation on the possibility of heightened oversight, this workshop will address how to protect your debit and credit card operations from further
legislative intervention.

Specific legislative topics will include:

  • The merchant community’s lobbying efforts to expand interchange regulations;
  • Future restrictions on prepaid products; and,
  • Data security legislation with a specific focus on notification procedures and breach liability requirements.

Nov 5 Tue
Enterprise Risk Management – Speaker Workshop Series @ Ashlar Village
9:00 am – 12:00 pm

alloya-corporate-federal-credit-union-logoWorkshop Leader:
John Collins
Alloya Corporate FCU

Taking risk, and balancing it with returns, is one of the most fundamental things
all financial institutions – including credit unions – do.
While all organizations understand that balancing risk versus return is vitally important, few evaluate risk as a whole across their organization. Understanding systemic risk and how it can be mitigated allows organizations to better manage this critical process.

The program will explore Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) through an interactive presentation and dialog. The morning session will cover the basics of what ERM is and why it is important to credit unions, the regulatory requirements surrounding ERM, and how some have implemented ERM in their organization. It will also cover policy, procedure and governance.

The afternoon session will review a model program and provide a template for attendees to develop ERM programs that can be tailored to their individual credit unions. Attendees will leave the session with the necessary tools to develop and implement an ERM program at their shop.

The program presented will address the following questions:
• What is ERM?
• Why is ERM important?
• Are there any regulatory requirements for ERM?
• What are people in the credit union industry doing for ERM?
• What would model ERM program look like?
• What would an ERM policy look like?

Curious about mobile wallets and how they can benefit your membership?

The Credit Union League of Connecticut is hosting a free educational session on CU Wallet and the future of electronic payments. Join us Tuesday, January 13, 2015 for a discussion led by Paul Fiore, Founder and CEO of CU Wallet.

In a few short years, mobile payments have evolved from a novelty to a game-changing member interface. Most recently Apple Pay entered the forum that was once controlled by Google Wallet, FreedomPay, Loop and others. But there is more to the experience than just enabling members to make a payment.

Have you considered a solution that can:

  • Create a new revenue stream and help your bottom line?
  • Reduce the potential for in-person fraud?
  • Make your card be “top of wallet”?

This presentation is no charge for credit union friends and will detail CU Wallet’s services and how they can enhance your members’ satisfaction. CU Wallet has a variety of unique features that can increase your revenue, reduce in-person fraud and make your card “top of wallet”.

CUNA GAC.  Powerful Cause. Positive Effect. We’ve hit the 100 million mark. Now let’s keep the momentum growing at GAC.

One hundred million credit union memberships is a significant milestone. It’s proof that Americans value the credit union difference. It reinforces that Americans want financial service alternatives that offer real choices and put them first. It’s time to celebrate—and time to leverage the opportunity.

Let’s do both at this year’s CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.

CUNA GAC is the biggest week of the year for credit unions. More than 4,000 credit union people come together to:

  • Hear from influential legislators, policymakers and credit union experts on the political landscape and its effect on credit unions
  • Identify new strategies for building and maintaining America’s awareness and trust
  • Network with credit union leaders
  • Attend breakout sessions on the hottest issues in the movement
  • Tour the largest vendor showcase in the financial services industry
  • Tell Congress our story at Hike the Hill visits
