    A Note From Chris

    Educating and providing you easy-access to industry expertise is a high priority at Corporate Central. As we prepare and finalize our 2018 calendar of events, please provide us with any recommendations on educational topics and your specific needs. We have a diverse group of credit union experts here at Corporate Central, and can deliver presentations based on asset/liability management, digital transformation, risk management, economic & financial trends, employee benefit strategies, and more. I’m especially excited to finalize our ALM education conference schedule, hosted at member credit union locations around the Midwest. Stay tuned for a robust 2018 calendar of events focused on you!

    What is I-Care?
    The initial product offering delivered through InterLutions, I-Care was established through a credit union driven collaborative initiative, empowering credit unions to take control of their increasing healthcare challenges by providing affordable, competitive, and sustainable coverage and benefits for their employees.

    Why join I-Care?

    • Moving to I-Care was transparent to our employees, seamless to HR, and reduced our health insurance fixed costs by over 25%. -- Landmark Credit Union
    • I-Care gives us the opportunity to give our employees what they deserve. -- Kohler Credit Union
    • The transition was seamless, our costs are in line with what we projected, and the service has been great. -- Educators Credit Union
    • Flexibility of plan design, along with the potential for significant cost savings and future wellness programs, made I-Care the best option for us. -- Fox Communities Credit Union

    Like most credit union executives these days, you wear a lot of hats. You're busy beyond busy, and your needs are constantly changing - especially as balance sheets become more complicated and portfolios become more sophisticated. To complicate things further, you may not have the time, tools and training needed to keep risk and opportunity balanced for peak performance.

    But...what if your credit union had an experienced partner that could:

    • Help maximize day-to-day balance sheet performance?
    • Do the never-ending math you don't have time to do?
    • Expertly adjust plans and projections as markets and goals change?
    • Run "what-if" scenarios and strategize for you?
    • Find opportunity on both sides of the balance sheet?
    • Build a balance sheet with muscle, flex and stamina?

    On the Acquisition Trail? Don’t Overlook Your Vendor Contracts
    Acquisition continues to be a preferred strategy for financial institutions (FIs) seeking to gain economies of scale while also expanding service offerings and reach. Choosing the correct merger candidate usually centers on factors like strategic fit, market footprint and business integration. There is another less exciting but important factor to consider during these talks: vendor contracts which can cause costly, tactical headaches if not identified early in the process. However, if the contracts are assessed early enough in the acquisition process, an institution can reap benefits greater than expected through due diligence process.
