    A Note From Chris

    I hope you’re all having a terrific summer!

    It’s been another busy month here at Corporate Central, as we recently launched a brand new website. This new website exemplifies the great strides we have taken to strengthen and modernize how we provide information to credit unions nationwide. In keeping with our mission to help members to be wildly successful, streamlining our site is a natural step forward in serving our members’ needs.

    We’re excited to share this updated resource with you as part of our digital transformation initiative. Please take a look through corpcu.com and let us know your thoughts!

    Credit union experts reflect on emerging innovations for financial institutions

    Chat Banking—This could be the next big game changer, both in momentum and viability. “Visualize your members typing into Facebook Messenger or talking to Alexa to connect with you,” says Robb Gaynor, Chief Product Officer for Malauzai, Austin, TX.“This will change digital banking and self-service for members forever.” By year-end, he notes that CUs will see the first wave of conversational apps appear in the form of chatbots for Facebook or Alexa for balance inquiries. “By the end of 2018, we’ll all be talking about conversational banking as we enter a massive wave of technology designed to support this exciting new way of interacting with members.”

    Wisconsin Innovation Group

    The deadline to apply or nominate a candidate for the inaugural Wisconsin Innovation Group is August 4. Sponsored by Corporate Central and The League, the Wisconsin Innovation Group will engage participants in the same innovation curriculum used in Filene's i3 program. Specifically, the program will:

    • cultivate the talent and drive of your credit union's current and future leaders
    • formalize an environment that consistently supports the development of solution-oriented financial services that "wow" your members and improve your outreach
    • involve participants (and their credit unions) in a nine-month process to develop financial products, services and business models that increase credit unions' relevance
    • culminate in an innovation showcase at The League's 2018 Annual Convention & Expo

    Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to advance the credit union movement through innovation!

    On July 3, 2017, NCUA placed proposed changes to NCUA Rules & Regulations 12 CFR Part 704 – Corporate Credit Unions in the Federal Register and allowed for a sixty-day comment period. These proposed changes are important for several reasons: they affect corporate credit union Tier 1 Capital calculations, recognition of Retained Earnings acquired in a merger, and also create a Retained Earnings Ratio benchmark.
