SCMS Alumni Invited to Attend the SCMS Innovation Symposium
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 6:45 AM


Alumni of the Southwest CUNA Management School are invited to a special SCMS Innovation Symposium on Wednesday, July 19. This July's class of graduates, alumni, and alumni guests will be part of a think-tank-style event designed to bridge the generational gap, generate new ideas, and explore transformative strategies for the future of the credit union movement.

A collision of new blood, experience, and disruptive thinking can help skyrocket the credit union movement. This is an excellent opportunity to mine the minds of living generations, from Boomers to Millennials, through open dialogue in a pressure-free environment. We want to blend the SCMS alumni experience with the fresh, motivated mindset of third-year students.

The Class of 2017 will be challenged during the week prior for ideas and questions that can be part of the discussion on Wednesday, July 19. Participants will consider questions such as:

  • How can we retain our collective institutional knowledge while transforming to a progressive, technology-savvy movement?
  • What are the carryover problems in need of 21st Century solutions?
  • How can we strengthen our member-centric cooperative core and extend our market share?
  • What does the future look like?
  • What are the disruptive game changers that can catapult the industry forward?

In addition to open discussions, Oklahoma Central Credit Union CEO Gina Wilson will facilitate a seasoned CEO panel that includes Mike Kloiber from Tinker FCU, Mike Moyer from Red Crown FCU, and Lily Newfarmer from Tarrant County's Credit Union.

Bring a Guest
At No Charge, current SCMS alumni or those who have paid lifetime dues are welcome to bring a guest—a credit union professional or future student.

Come for the Golf, Stay for the Fun
And remember, if you are coming in early for the annual golf tournament you are invited to stay for the annual dinner, reception, and scholarship auction Tuesday evening.
