International CU Day Proclamation

On October 15th, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts held a proclamation signing ceremony where he proclaimed October 18th as International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) in Nebraska.  This year is the 70th Anniversary of credit unions around the world celebrating ICU Day.

During the ceremony Governor Ricketts thanked credit unions for improving the financial health of the communities that they serve.  In remarks before those in attendance, League President/CEO Scott Sullivan said, “Credit unions exist to serve the financial needs of their member-owners and to be their partner in achieving their dreams of higher education, home ownership, financial peace, and a secure retirement.”  He went on to thank Governor Ricketts for recognizing the good work that Nebraska credit unions do throughout the State and for the proclamation.

CECL Training for Small CUs

CECL trainings coming in September!

September 5th – Midwest Chapter meeting *register with the chapter

September 6th – Omaha (NCUL) and/or Lincoln (LincOne FCU) REGISTER

Current expected credit loss. CECL. Much has been said about how it changes the ALLL calculation, but a tremendous amount of uncertainty remains for many credit unions—especially less complex institutions. In this nuts-and-bolts seminar, we will boil the requirements down to their essentials, and demonstrate how credit union employees can incorporate the average life of their loans and utilize a reasonable and supportable forecast, all from the comfort of their own computers.

   *This session is geared toward smaller credit unions.  More CECL will be covered at the Compliance Conference in October for larger CUs.

 **Due to the complex nature of the material, there will NOT be a teleconference option.

Presenter:  Stephen Nelson has worked in the credit union industry for 19 years, spending most of his time at the Utah Credit Union Association, presenting about and consulting with credit unions on many hot-button topics: strategic planning, business continuity, data analytics, cyber security, volunteer duties, and now CECL.

E-Signature FAQ For Credit Unions

Date:  Tuesday, August 21, 2018
Time: 1:00 pm Central
A free webinar brought to you by CUNA Strategic Services and OneSpan Sign, (formerly E-Sign Live)

As credit unions strive to become 100% digital, electronic signatures are a key enabling technology to help increase efficiency and offer a superior member experience. CUNA reports that e-signatures are being used by 77% of credit unions for loan applications, member service agreements, mortgage renewals, board documents, HR and supplier contracts and more – resulting in significant time and cost savings. Despite impressive adoption, many have automated only a handful of online processes, and there remains tremendous opportunity to further digitize within the industry.

In this 30-minute webinar, we’ll share best practices for becoming a paperless credit union and will answer the most frequently asked electronic signature questions.
Highlights will include:

  • Advanced e-signature use cases including in-branch signing and mortgage
  • Tips for maximizing e-signature adoption and use
  • Top requirements for a scalable e-signature solution
  • Key differentiators that matter
  • Integration with your LoS
