During this session, Jill Nowacki will introduce four reasons why your Board might wish to take a new look at diversity in the boardroom, then will introduce actions that can move you toward a more strategic approach to Board diversity.
Jason Boles - Wake-up Times Have Changed
The credit union environment has been changing for years – even without the help of the COVID-19 pandemic. It just accelerated it (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). Member behaviors and expectations have changed. Therefore the way you run the credit union, and the strategies you implement, must evolve to remain relevant. Simply put, it doesn’t matter what you did to be successful in the past – those days are over. It only matters what you will do to be successful in the future. Prepare yourself for a glance into the future and discover what you will need to do to be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
