A Note from Chris

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that participated in and donated to our first annual Titletown Showdown Credit Union Challenge at City Stadium in Green Bay, WI. Together we raised over $10,000 for Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes. Congratulations to Capital Credit Union for putting together the winning team during our flag football competition!

As we approach this very special day in October – International Credit Union Day – I encourage everyone to reflect on the stories that shape your credit union and share the memories that you have made with your members. In my 20+ years in the credit union movement, I have found the stories of how credit unions impact the lives of members to be inspirational and key examples of our “difference.” Happy International Credit Union Day!

Thank you,

Chris' Signature

What's New & Who's Who

Jef Radtke, Business Development Executive
Why was Cinderella thrown off the basketball team? She ran away from the ball! Emergifi’s newest hire, Jef Radkte, understands the importance of teamwork and dedication. Not only has Jef successfully coached high school basketball teams over the past 25 years, he has also spent over two decades helping credit unions win by delivering cutting edge technology solutions. Slam dunk, Emergifi!

Jeff Lundgren, Cloud Migration Engineer
If you ask Jeff Lundgren what music, guitars, and an American icon have in common, he would probably say the Harley celebration. The roads led Jeff to Milwaukee’s 100th Harley Davidson Anniversary Celebration where he played in a band at one of the music stages. A rare opportunity most of us could only dream about! Jeff is excited to help credit unions resolve their most complex technology projects, so you and your staff can focus on the things that matter most (like members, music, and motorcycles)!

Five Key Technology Initiatives
This past month, Emergifi met with a member located in central Wisconsin. After a discovery meeting, Emergifi learned the President of the credit union had five key technology initiatives:

  1. Find a dedicated technology resource whose focus is on the credit union industry;
  2. Remove the IT burden from staff during their physical move to a new location;
  3. Technical resource access to handle Windows and Office standardization within the credit union;
  4. Receive a cybersecurity roadmap for both internal and external communications; and
  5. Recapture time spent by staff on IT administrative tasks.

Continuing Education
QuantyPhi continued to focus on the education front in September. Nick Haisler presented in the Wednesday Webinar series with a look at Ginnie Mae adjustable rate mortgages. Over time, we have seen many members add these securities to the portfolio to protect the balance sheets from rising interest rates. Nick walked through the analytics showing that there are other options that outperform these types of securities, especially in instances where rates climb. He also showed alternative means to accomplish the rates up protection, if needed.
