Exhibitors fall into one of these three (3) categories:

1.     League affiliates

2.     KYCUL Services business partners and endorsed vendors, and

3.     Non-endorsed vendors.

Business partners and endorsed vendors provide a service or product which has been reviewed by KYCUL Services and which, based upon review and analysis, is believed to be of a quality nature and worthy of endorsement.  Affiliates, business partners and endorsed vendors are clearly identified by signs at their exhibit booths.

The products and services of non-endorsed vendors have not been reviewed or analyzed and KYCUL Services and the League make no representations with regard to their quality.

We encourage credit unions to investigate non-endorsed vendors thoroughly before purchasing their products and services.

Opening Keynote Speaker:  Denise Wymore


Denise began her career in credit unions over 30 years ago. She started as a teller of a $14 million government employees credit union in Portland, Oregon and moved up and around the organizational chart for the next 20 years at various credit unions and served as VP for both the Credit Union Association of Oregon and New Mexico.

From 2000 - 2010 Denise was a brand consultant and facilitated strategic planning sessions with credit unions ranging in size from $10 million to $10 billion in assets. Denise has spoken for nearly every credit union league and association in America and the World Council of Credit Unions twice (Warsaw, Poland and Brisbane, Australia).

Session Descriptions

Opening Keynote:  Innovation in Credit Unions:  An Oxymoron?

Let's face it.  Credit unions have never been known as innovators.  At best, we hold the title for "Fastest Follower."  But is that good enough?

The problem with innovation in credit unions?  Our very structure makes sure that we protect the status quo, agree to things we don't necessarily agree with just to get out of a meeting.  We are surrounded by objections to any change: "We tried that already" or "I don't think we can do that - the examiners..."  And sadly, we continue to be held hostage by our core processors:  "We can't do that because the computer system can't handle it."  

In this keynote, Denise will share her journey of innovation and creation as a member of the i3 Filene Research team.  She learned the discipline of solving real problems with solutions that matter and are scalable.
