CLEVELAND -- Last month, 36 credit union professionals from 14 law enforcement credit unions attended the fourth annual Police Officers' Credit Union Conference, sponsored by Corporate Central Credit Union and Corporate One Federal Credit Union.
Attendees discussed unique issues and opportunities related to serving their field of membership--police officers. Topics included disaster recovery, reverse mortgages, risk-based capital, defending and developing market share, cross-selling strategies and employee incentives.
"I personally enjoyed the educational opportunities where the smaller credit uions like mine can derive the same benefit as the larger ones. No matter the size, law enforcement credit unions all experience the same issues," said Darrell Basler, CEO of Greater Hartford Police Federal Credit Union. "The networking opportunity this conference provides is invaluable," he said.
The mission of the Police Officers' Credit Union Conference is to provide a national forum to credit union executives for the purpose of sharing ideas and strategies to enhance the delivery of financial services to members of the law enforcement profession and their families.
"The Police Officers' Credit Union Conference provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement credit unions to collaborate and share ideas," Paul Hixon, assistant vice president, marketing and communications manager for Corporate One, said.
Ken Bator, vice president--business development for Corporate Central added, "I am personally humbled to have been involved with this event since its inception in 2004 and to see how well it has grown. The true credit union spirit of cooperation and member focus is truly alive and well in the form of the Police Officers Credit Union Conference."
