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.

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?

Speaker:
Attorney Andrew Keeney
Kaufman & Canoles, P.C.

Credit Unions and their members confront on a daily basis with social media.
A hot topic for credit unions is social media, but it has its risks, especially potential consumer risks. There are marketing and advertising issues. There are privacy issues. Add to the significant risk areas the effort to deal with compliance risks and legal risks, along with reputation risks and privacy rights. Our speaker; Andy Keeney, a nationally recognized credit union attorney believes that the biggest risk is a credit union’s reputation risk. With just one poor review or negative comment on social media, years of a credit union’s success can be undermined. Come and learn more about these compliance risks and what steps your credit union can undertake to minimize the risks.
