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.

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
