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”.

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.
