DakCU is excited to announce our featured speakers and topics for the upcoming New Ideas Conference! The historic Black Leg Ranch near Bismarck is the perfect setting for our 2022 New Ideas theme: People – Product – Purpose, and a “working ranch,” where cooperation is necessary for the success of all, will provide the backdrop for this experience!
Besides our special guest and emcee, Chris Lorence from CU Awareness LLC, we have a “stampede” of talent in store for you – including:
Jay Doan - Black Leg Ranch
As a member of the Doan family, Jay has firsthand knowledge of managing the “cowherd.” To survive and thrive, the Doan family had to diversify and adapt as more members were added. Homesteaded in 1882, the ranch has broadened traditional commercial cattle ranching into a multifunctioning, value-added enterprise that has diversified into a hunting outfit, international agri-tourism operation, wedding and events venue, craft brewery, and its most recent venture, commercial meats. Jay will discuss his firsthand knowledge of the importance of diversifying as well as the concept of regeneration. Check out this welcome video and brief “tour” prepared personally by Jay just for our event!
Ted Brown – Digital Onboarding
For credit unions, acquiring a new account is expensive and first-year attrition rates are sky high. Welcoming members with paper welcome kits, direct mail, and phone calls is expensive and ineffective. There has never been a better time for credit unions to double down on driving organic growth. Learn how to turn new and existing members into deep and lasting relationships! Ted will also address new trends in capturing market share and organic growth opportunities, but most importantly – he will explain best practices for serving new and existing members to ensure they become and stay fully engaged! Catch a preview of Ted Brown in his short video here.
If you are interested in embracing broader trends and developing future vision, you will want to see Sean Raboin from HTG! He will demonstrate how traditional ways of delivering financial services are a thing of the past – and how a new approach and the right physical environment can separate you from the competition and enhance relationship building strategies.
Do you need help with communicating effectively and creating clarity for your team for a more cohesive workplace? Patrick Metzger from EOS Worldwide will explain the concept of having the right people in the right seats as a core necessity in any business – and tie that into your organizational goals, strategic planning, internal communications, and more.
And don’t forget, we have Jack Stahlman, the “Don’t Flinch Guy,” who will share how being in the right role within the right team can be the adventure of a lifetime! By weaving in life lessons, thinking outside yourself, and seeing the world through the eyes of others, attendees can gain a new appreciation for decision making at all levels within an organization. This rare presentation will touch both employees and managers alike!
Don’t wait any longer! There are just a few days remaining for the EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT! The Early Bird price is just $299 per person – and only good until September 9th!
DakCU’s New Ideas Conference will leave you excited, invigorated, and inspired with new concepts, as well as actionable steps and key takeaways that you can implement at your organization immediately.
For your convenience, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Residence Inn in Bismarck – which is also available until September 9th – and another reason to make your plans now! Check in on Monday afternoon, October 3rd, and then we will board a shuttle bus together from the hotel directly to Black Leg Ranch at 3:00 p.m. (Of course, you are welcome to drive yourself – but look at this as a fun little “field trip!”) That evening, we will return by bus to the hotel, and resume our meetings at the ranch the following morning, October 4th, for a full day – into evening – schedule of presentations and activities.
Why wait any longer?
