Credit unions across Hawaii gathered together April 6 through 8 for Hawaii Credit Union League’s 79th Annual Convention in Kauai, HI. During the convention, credit union executives and volunteers learned about new regulatory compliance issues, discussed future trends in the financial services industry, networked with each other, and of course celebrated the credit union difference. The theme of this year’s convention was “Next Generation Solutions.” Credit unions know the importance of teaching kids about healthy financial habits. The Hawaii Annual Convention theme is to “reinforce the vision of credit unions as financial services solutions for the new generation of consumers.”
The convention started off with Hawaii’s Credit Union Golf Tournament, which benefits the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network. After the golf tournament, the education sessions began, with topics discussing:
- The Bank Secrecy Act Training and Its Importance
- NCUA’s New IRR Supervisory Approach
- How to Stay Relevant in Competitive Lending Space
- Compliance — How to Avoid Major Disasters
Marketing topics were also prominent during the convention. Sessions on branding, digital and television advertising, SEO, SEM, targeting, and social media advertising gave attendees advice to take back to their credit unions. These are all items with which Oak Tree Business Systems’ Marketing Services team can assist your credit union. Contact us by email at to learn more.
Tying into the theme of “Next Generation Solutions,” there was a panel discussion on Attracting and Retaining Young Members. This panel featured speakers from Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union, Kauai Community Federal Credit Union, Hawaii State Federal Credit Union, Maui County Federal Credit Union, and the Hawaii Credit Union League.
The Hawaii Credit Union League Annual Convention is a great way to stay informed about compliance-related topics. Besides, you can`t beat the amazing location. We hope to participate next year and look forward to being in Hawaii this year at the NAFCU Convention.
