Profit and philosophy aren’t at odds with one another. In fact, the more philosophically-positioned your credit union, the more income it will make. Guaranteed.
Your credit union has to be focused on the traditional bottom line of income, so chasing a “double bottom line” of income and member impact can be daunting. But what if one naturally causes the other? It’s proven that the most successful credit unions are those attuned to the double bottom line, driving revenue and providing working-class people with products and services that help them reach the next rung on the ladder of financial success.
Philosophy Day on Aug. 28, which will be anything but a “passive learning” experience, is completely focused on maximizing your credit union’s double bottom line of income and sustained impact. Get ready for a day of hands-on work, armed with custom analysis and information for your specific credit union and community. Are you ready to return to your credit union new product and service concepts in hand, ready to start implementing? You’ll spend the day incubating products and services directly relevant to your credit union and enhancing that double bottom line.
No matter where your credit union is on the spectrum of “thinking philosophically” when it comes to its products and services, there’s always room for the next step forward. Be a part of the 2018 Philosophy Day, a next-level product incubator experience; register today.
