Upcoming Webinars


We are launching several new topics in our risk-management educational series for credit unions. Mark H. Smith presents a number of Webinars that focus on current topics and issues facing credit unions. The webinars are free, and hopefully, these productions provide you insight to help you meet the challenges credit unions face today.

There are no silver bullets, but you will share in the accumulated knowledge base of our experienced financial advisors whose expertise comes from more than five decades of credit union service. The current list of topics is included. Topics may change as events unfold during the remainder of the year. Updates will be published on this page and in our bi-monthly newsletter.

Strategic Development: Are You Asking the Right Questions?

Featured Webinar circle mark

Presented by Guest Speaker Scott Butterfield, CUDE, CCUE, CUCE. Scott is a trusted advisor to the leaders of more than 100 credit unions located throughout the United States. A well-respected veteran of the CU Movement, he understands the challenges and opportunities facing credit unions today. From Strategic Planning facilitation to comprehensive business plan development – Scott knows how to get things done! Scott believes that credit unions matter and that consumers and small businesses need credit unions now more than ever.
Strategic thinking, according to Peter Drucker, is knowing the right questions to ask. He taught that the three most important strategic questions each company must answer are:
• What is our business? (Mission)
• What will our business be? (The changing environment that we are certain about)
• What should our business be? (Vision)
The best answers to these questions are elusive to many credit unions. Answering these questions isn’t as easy as you might think, especially in the ever-changing environment that we operate.
Join Scott Butterfield, to learn more about how these “three key strategic questions” can help credit unions to align their business strategies to be the most successful.

The best answers to these questions are elusive to many credit unions. Answering these questions isn’t as easy as you might think, especially in the ever-changing environment that we operate. Understanding what our business should be, in the changing environment can be a bit more complicated. The most successful credit unions have a very firm understanding of whom they want to serve, and they know specifically what type of help is needed. Once we can answer whom it is that we want to help, then we can align this mission to the opportunities in the environment. This will help us set our sights on what our business should be (vision) three, five, or 10 years from now.
