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.
