Texas, Colorado leagues to co-sponsor first "CU E-Vent"
SEATTLE - Finding and carrying out the right e-commerce strategy will be the focus of the first "Credit Union E-Vent" conference to be held August 13-15. "Depending how you look at it, e-commerce offers a real opportunity, or a real threat to you," said Randy Harrington, founder and CEO of Extreme Arts & Sciences, one of the sponsors of the conference. "People are rushing into e-commerce decisions out of blind fear of being left out. Instead, they should have a measured strategy," said Harrington. CU E-Vent is a cooperative venture between Extreme Arts and Science and the Colorado and Texas CU Leagues. "We've done a good job of letting credit unions know about technology. But we have not taken an active role in helping credit unions plan for and apply technology," said Dick Ensweiler, President/CEO of the Texas Credit Union League. The conference will feature e-commerce professionals who will provide hands-on workshops for participants. For more information call Extreme Arts & Sciences at (877) 345-5764.
