The Value of Proper Data Management | Bobby Childs

(12:00 PM)
In 1848 over 300,000 people left their homes, and even sometimes families, to head to California to take advantage of the discovery of gold found at Sutter’s Mill. The sudden influx of both gold into the money supply and people flooding local towns lead to a massive boom in the American economy and also to California’s rapid move into statehood. We now know and refer to this period as the “gold rush” and it was a time in our history marked by the sheer power of a large quantity of very valuable material. In today’s economy, we have our own “gold mine” that we are sitting on that is waiting to be utilized to its fullest measure – and that “gold mine” is data! In fact, the majority of US companies are sitting on over 100 terabytes of data right now which has the potential to create billions in revenue and cost savings! However, if not managed properly this “gold mine” can go left untouched, underutilized or just plain buried. Join Bobby Childs September 17th at the What’s NXT 2020 conference as he talks about the immense value of data and how proper management of this data is the key to unlocking its potential!

In this session, we will dig into what you should be reviewing when you receive your vendors’ SOC 2 reports. Each SOC (Service Organization Controls) report follows a basic outline. We will highlight the key points to focus on when reviewing your vendors’ SOC reports. In this session, we won’t go into the details of what report you need to obtain. we're here to talk about SOC 2. We’ll help answer the question of what you should be doing once you get the report in your hands.

5 Important Considerations for a Credit Union Purchasing a Bank | Dennis Holthaus

(3:15 PM)
The first credit union bank acquisition transaction closed in 2012. It’s really hard to believe that eight years have already passed since then and that approximately fifty additional transactions have closed or are pending. While the transaction volume has declined in 2020, for obvious reasons, five transactions have been announced this year, including one earlier this month. The expectation is that 2021 will see an increase in the number of deal announcements over 2020. This session will review the primary strategic issues that a credit union board and management team should consider when evaluating whether or not to pursue a bank acquisition opportunity.
