Catalyst Corporate – the projected result of merging Southwest Bridge Corporate Federal Credit Union into Georgia Corporate – took another step towards projecting confidence about its future by announcing it will hold a two-day economic forum, Engaging A New Era, on Sept. 28-29 in Atlanta.
This is just three weeks after the scheduled Sept. 6 formalization of the merger.
As Catalyst noted in a statement, “As the event theme suggests, participants will have an opportunity to begin formulating economic strategies to guide their institutions over the next 12 months. They also will have a chance to engage the new era ushered in by the launch of Catalyst Corporate Federal Credit Union.”
Attendance is open to all credit unions, with an early bird fee of $175. After Sept. 8, the registration fee is $225.
Scheduled speakers include Roger Tutterow, chief economic advisor to The Henssler Financial Group and professor of economics at Mercer University, who will provide an outlook on the local economy; Tim Lerew, technology consultant, who will explore the use of electronic wallets and other emerging technologies; Tun Wai, vice president of research and chief economist for NAFCU, who will provide an economic outlook for the credit union industry; Ben Rogers, research director for the Filene Research Institute, who will discuss recent credit union industry research and trend analysis; and Cory Johnston and Brian Turner, vice president of investment sales and director of advisory services, respectively, of Catalyst Strategic Solutions. Johnston and Turner will discuss strategies for effectively managing credit union balance sheets.
