Meet dynamic SLDC presenters Mike Higgins, Arden Clise and Kela Wingard

There’s So Much to Discover at the Southeast Leadership Development Conference (SLDC) Virtual Experience! Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll find at the SLDC Virtual Experience.

Meet Mike Higgins

What if credit unions are using the wrong process to measure success? If credit unions are really all about providing value for members, why fixate on profit to measure our credit union’s success? In his session “Measuring Your Credit Union’s Value Proposition,” Mike Higgins, partner at Mike Higgins & Associates, will show you a better way! Discover how to balance the need for financial success with the need to create tangible economic value for members. It is possible to achieve both goals!

Mike will explore:

  • Member Net Worth (determining the right amount)
  • Product Mix (how member net worth is leveraged)
  • Productivity (why traditional measures of productivity are 100% wrong)
  • Provision Expense (how effectively credit is being administered)
  • Pricing (the ultimate measure of value provided to members)

Meet Arden Clise

How much does your staff suffer from meeting fatigue? An expert in the field of business etiquette, Arden Clise will help you discover how to keep your meetings on course and increase productivity. Learn how to facilitate and participate in virtual or in-person gatherings that are inclusive and enjoyable and actually accomplish something.

You’ll explore:

  • How to facilitate effective and productive meetings
  • How to handle meeting interruptions and side trackers both as a facilitator and participant
  • The importance of practicing and enforcing meeting etiquette
  • Video meeting best practices

Meet Kela Wingard

As a director, how much do you know about compliance risk for your credit union? Kela, the compliance coordinator at LSCU & Affiliates, will help directors discover what they need to know to fulfill their duties as a volunteer.

  • The compliance risk management process
