WASHINGTON -- Prime Alliance Executive Vice President Dan Green, who has been tapped as the opening keynote speaker for the 2008 Financial Solutions Symposium, says the mortgage market still offers opportunity for credit unions.
This year's meeting addresses the theme: "Managing through the Credit Crisis: Finding Opportunities to Create Member Value." Green says this will not be merely an inspirational speech but will detail strategy and actionable items for credit union executives.
"Members are finding credit unions as a trustworthy source of mortgage lending. Almost everyone else in the industry has lost credibility. Members are seeking out credit unions," said Green. "Credit union mortgage originations are up 11% from 2006. Credit union market share of mortgage originations is up one full percentage point: from 2.6 in 2006 to 3.6 in the fourth quarter of 2007, (according to the Mortgage Banker's Association)."
The goal of the Financial Solutions Symposium is to provide credit union leaders in depth knowledge on key issues and choices facing the industry.
This year's fifth annual Financial Solutions Symposium, co-sponsored by WesCorp and Callahan & Associates will be held March 25-27 at the ChampionsGate Resort in Orlando, Florida.
