Booking is now open for our first CFCFE conference of the year, on Monday 29th March.

What is the issue?
2020 saw a significant acceleration of the digitalisation of our societies and economies. Post-vaccines, most agree there will not be a great reversion to a 2019 way of life.
Alongside impacts of the pandemic, the evolution of fintech and big data technology, such as open banking, will facilitate further significant change in the financial services industry, with uncertain consequence for consumer behaviour.
For UK credit unions, the next 24 months may offer legislative change and widened scope for trading.
Credit union leaders, both executives and directors, need to consider whether their business model is right for this environment. Some credit unions have seen merger as a strategic response to strengthen their organisations, but this is not an easy process to get right.
This conference will consider the external operating context, the importance of building a business model on a clear and agreed purpose, and explore credit union leader experience of making mergers work.
How will the online conference work?
The conference will be presented on Zoom. We are working to deliver an enjoyable and interactive online experience of the conference. Details of how you can ask questions, join in discussion etc. will be sent to attendees nearer the time.
