‘REACHtalks’ and Breakout Sessions Offer Strategies for CUs

Breakout session

The REACH 2018 conference on Thursday afternoon was filled with plenty of mini-presentations on innovation and disruption, product delivery, networks and operations, disaster recovery, engaging consumers, trends and issues, culture and strategy, collaborative analytics, e-commerce, cybersecurity, and thriving in today’s business environment.

These were just a handful of topics delivered during the third day of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues’ annual convention in Hollywood, CA. After two days of keynote speakers, panels, and other guests on stage, conference attendees absorbed even more information to take back and implement at their credit unions.

Credit union leaders said the following “REACHtalks” and breakout sessions added a valuable perspective to their planning and strategy for 2019:
