In Case You Missed It...2017
Jeff Merry Many thanks to those of you who were able to join us August 16th – 18th for VolCorp’s Annual Meeting and Forum '17. As is customary, part of the Annual Meeting was my delivery of the President's Address in which I talked about VolCorp's strong track record of overcoming adversity, where and what we are today, and, most importantly, what all of this means to you, our members and purpose for existing. I started this 'series' entitled 'In Case You Missed It' last year upon giving my first President's Address and plan to do this annually for those who were unable to attend the event. I think it is important for all of you who support us and whom we support to have a good sense of the current state of your corporate. With that, please enjoy In Case You Missed it…2017:


Recent Amendments to Regulation CC;
Everything You Need to Know, But Were Afraid To Ask

Attention this has changed! stamp Also known as the "Expedited Funds Availability Act", Regulation CC, is a United States law enacted by Congress in 1987. It is the regulation governing the availability of funds for transaction accounts and the “holds” which financial institutions can place on checks. This regulation continues to be one of the toughest compliance problems for financial institutions around the country.

LoanStreet What is LoanStreet? The short answer is an innovative loan participation solution that enables the efficient sale of any size or type of loan to one or more credit unions. In reality, it is so much more!

The goal was to highlight some case studies of other VolCorp members actively using the platform while providing a tool to help explain loan participation to your board. Listed below are a few key points highlighted within the paper.

Get Your Game On For 2018
Football Equipment and Chalk Board Play Strategy
The roar of the crowd at a football game, leaves falling to the ground, the smell of pumpkin pie in the oven and that dreaded feeling you have knowing it’s time to work on a marketing plan and budget for next year....ahh, the wonderful season of fall.

Just like a football team hits the field with a game plan, it is vital that your credit union start now and make a plan for 2018. Planning now will help you win the game of marketing with your members in 2018 and beyond. Basically, it’s the difference between a touchdown and a fumble. Plan equals touchdown...no plan equals fumble. Can’t get any more simpler than that. And as credit unions, we want a lot of touchdowns.
