Last Thursday, in a continuing series of best practices and performance analysis webinars, Callahan & Associates organized ''Playing in the Big Leagues''. This online seminar featured 25 credit unions from across the country, all between $100-250 million in assets, discussing a variety of topics pertaining to institutions their size.

After a financial overview by John Marron and Jay Johnson of Callahan & Associates that focused on credit unions in that asset range, four other credit union best performers discussed their programs and how they've achieved success.

The speakers included:

  • Christine Schwarz, AVP of RE Lending at USC CU discussing their booming real estate program and their sales experiences in the secondary market.
     
  • Mike Kim, Chief Lending Officer at USC CU talked about their student lending program and its evolution into the #1 program in the country.
     
  • Brian Hughes, CFO at Sun FCU taught the attendees his investment style and approach and how it's led him to yields of over 5% - excellent returns in today's interest-rate environment.
     
  • Cecilia Homison, CFO of Florida Commerce CU gave us insight into her customized courtesy pay program and how it's helped them make over $3.7 million in non-interest income in the first half of the year.
