President's Point

LSCU board nominations are in; voting will begin soon

This past Friday was the deadline for nominations to the LSCU board of directors. There are four board seats up for election this year. Three are Class A seats, which is a credit union with fewer than 2,000 members; with two seats being in Florida and one in Alabama. The fourth open seat is a Class C Alabama seat, which is a credit union with not less than 15,000 members and not more than 40,000 members. After receiving and certifying the nominations, the two Alabama seats will be filled by acclamation meaning we will not have to conduct an election vote.

In the Class C Alabama seat, incumbent board member Bob Steensma, Dothan-based Five Star CU CEO, will serve a full four-year term. The Class A Alabama seat also had one nomination, Mobile-based Blue Flame CU CEO Jeanette Keller. Both will automatically be on the board this June after the League’s annual meeting in Orlando. Please join me in congratulating both. 

There will be an election in Florida to fill the two open Class A seats. The three candidates are:

  • Leianne Harden, CEO, Florida Customs FCU, Tampa
  • Steve Nazurak, CEO, Tallahassee FCU, Tallahassee
  • Marie Ferngren, CEO, Hialeah Municipal EFCU, Hialeah

This year we will be conducting board elections in a different way than has been done in the past. Later this week, we will be sending all eligible Florida credit union CEOs electronic ballots that will include an essay up to 250 words written by each candidate describing their qualifications for running. This voting method is a change from the hard copy ballots of the past and is designed to make voting both easier as well as increase overall participation. Remember, these candidates are representing your credit union’s interest to the League. They will be your voice to assist senior management in charting the strategic direction for the League.

We appreciate all of the candidates’ willingness to represent credit unions on our board and the commitment they are showing to the League. Watch your email for more information on the candidates and for your electronic ballot.

I welcome your thoughts and feedback. [ Return to Top ]

Governmental Affairs News
This week in Alabama politics: Senate hearing on public deposits, right of redemption legislation

Alabama Legislative Update

Senate Hearing on Public Deposits
Last week the Senate Banking & Insurance Committee held a public hearing on SB 299 by Sen. Bill Hotlzclaw (R-Madison). SB 299 gives credit unions in Alabama the ability to become “qualified public depositories” and therefore receive deposits from public entities throughout the state. Testifying on behalf of SB 299 was Steve Swofford, CEO Alabama Credit Union, Steve Zerkis, mayor of Indian Springs Village, Mark Williams, lobbyist for the credit union coalition, and Jason Cochran, LSCU director of legislative affairs in Alabama.  Both bankers associations, the Alabama Bankers Association and the Community Bankers Association of Alabama, had one representative testify against the bill.

In all, it was a good hearing for credit unions and SB 299. The bankers used the same rhetoric that credit unions have heard for years on this issue. They cited the tax exemption and an unfair competitive advantage as to why the legislation should not be moved forward. Credit union testimony focused on the benefits to increased competition, and that deposit services are being requested by the communities credit unions serve. There was spirited debate on the committee, so much so that the committee did not hear two other pieces of legislation due to running out of time. Sen. Holtzclaw did a magnificent of job handling the legislation on credit unions’ behalf and he deserves a thank you from the entire credit union community.

What's next? This week, the League plans to touch base with the Banking & Insurance Committee members in order to take their temperature and determine whether the League would like to see a vote take place. There are pros and cons on taking a vote, more than can be spelled out in this short update, but the focus will be on what’s best for the legislation moving forward with the limited time that remains in the legislative session. The League will continue to update you as developments happen.

Right of Redemption Legislation
Last week the League told you about new right of redemption legislation, HB 673. At this point, negotiations are still taking place on whether or not something can be worked so that this legislation will be heard in the House Financial Services Committee. Like the public deposits legislation, time is running out and action must be taken soon.  While it does not appear that anything will happen on this legislation this session, the League is meeting with leadership to see what, if anything can be done.

This week in Florida politics: Redistricting still tops headlines, Atwater will NOT run

Florida Politics Week in Review

Redistricting Dominates Headlines, Again!
Much of the focus in Florida politics has shifted from what happened in the 2012 Legislative Session, to what is happening with the new redistricting maps. The newly drawn Congressional maps were discussed in a court hearing in front of Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis last week. While there was no indication on what Judge Lewis will decide, however, expect the decision to be appealed whether he decides the map is constitutional or not. Similarly, the Florida Senate map, which was thrown out by the Florida Supreme Court and redrawn in a special session, was argued in front of the Supreme Court on Friday. Many expected the Court to again admonish the Senate on the new map, however, there was a much different tone from the Court on this second Senate map.

Justice Barbara Pariente, author of the 5-to-2 decision invalidating the original map, made it clear that the court intends to limit its review to repairing only districts that potentially remain in violation of the state’s new anti-gerrymandering standards. Pariente said that re-opening districts that were unchanged or unchallenged by opponents would be unfair to the Senate, a crushing blow to opponents of the map who feel that the Senate should have completely redrawn the map. The court has until May 14 to approve or reject the map. If rejected, the court must propose a fix. With the House of Representatives map approved by the court, campaigning is in full swing, even while everyone awaits the fate of the Senate and Congressional maps. The final week for qualifying for all candidates in Florida is June 4-8, unless an executive order is issued extending this time.

CFO Jeff Atwater Decides NOT to run for Senate
Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, Jeff Atwater, had been mulling whether to enter the GOP primary to try and unseat incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL). After much thought and consideration, Atwater decided against running. He issued a statement on his Facebook page, stating that he and his wife Carol, “…believe we have a responsibility to finish the job Floridians elected us to do.” Atwater had considered running after hearing frustrations from Republican voters about the direction the other candidates’ campaigns have gone. Recent polls show Sen. Nelson with a 10-point lead over GOP frontrunner Connie Mack IV (R). Atwater did not endorse another candidate, but promised to be involved in the race.

News from the Hill: ATM fee disclosure legislation, MBL update

News from the Hill Update

The Senate and the House are in session this week. The Senate will convene at noon on Monday and resume consideration of S.1925, the Violence Against Women Re-authorization Act. In addition, the Senate this week will consider S.J.Res.36, a joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval of the rule submitted by the National Labor Relations Board relating to representation election procedures. The Senate will also consider the nomination of Brian C. Wimes to be United States District Judge for the Eastern and Western Districts of Missouri.  Finally, the Senate is expected to complete action on S.1789, the Postal Reform bill.

The House will reconvene for legislative work at noon tomorrow, and is expected to consider several bills under suspension of the rules.

ATM Fee Disclosure Legislation
Last week, Reps. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) and David Scott (D-GA) introduced H.R. 4367, a bill to eliminate the requirement that ATM operators provide a physical disclosure of potential fees associated with an ATM transaction. CUNA strongly supports this legislation and worked very closely with these offices and other coalition partners to secure the bill’s introduction. CUNA and the League support this legislation, and the League is reaching out to its two delegations to express support and seek their co-sponsorship of this important bill.

Member Business Lending
Procedurally, the Senate technically could take up S. 2231, the Credit Union Small Business Jobs Act, at any time. However, given the Senate schedule described above, it is unlikely to occur before the next scheduled Senate recess during the week of April 30. Nevertheless, the League's advocacy efforts on this legislation continues. The Independent Community Bankers Association will be in Washington for a fly-in this week, and you can be assured that they are voicing their opposition to MBL will be at the top of their agenda. The League is sending a list of questions lawmakers should ask the bankers, pointing out the inaccuracies and hypocrisy in their arguments. With the banks in town, if your credit union has not made calls, especially to the Senate, in support of member business lending, this is certainly the week to do so. For a copy of the latest action alert, click here.

As you may be aware, the Credit Union Journal and the American Banker have reported on statements made by Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) spokesperson regarding the potential delay in Senate consideration of the MBL bill.

Nothing with respect to the procedural status of the legislation has changed. The scheduling of a vote on this issue – on any issue like this – is always a function of a crowded Senate schedule (as noted by Sen. Schumer’s spokesperson) and the need to have the votes to prevail.  What is more important than the timing of the vote is winning the vote. To do that, credit unions need to build on the momentum generated in recent weeks, and push even harder.

Credit unions hold fundraiser for Rep. Posey

 

Doug Samuels, CEO of Space Coast Credit Union, and David Brock, CEO of Community CU of Florida, along with their wives, Linda Samuels and Angela Brock, recently co-hosted a fundraising reception for Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) (right of center).

LSCU SVP, Finance & Administration Scott Morgan represented the League at the event. The reception is a great example of credit unions helping their friends in Congress. Rep. Posey is one of the best friends credit unions have right now in Congress. He has co-sponsored legislation on member business lending, exam fairness, and supplemental capital for credit unions and continues to be a strong advocate for the credit union movement.

Compliance Corner
League InfoSight highlight: Authentication in Internet Banking Environment

In October 2005, the FFIEC Agencies issued guidance that provided a risk management framework for financial institutions offering Internet-based product and services to their members. It stated that institutions should use effective methods to authenticate the identity of customers and that the techniques employed should be commensurate with the risks associated with the products and services offered and the protection of sensitive customer information.

To help your credit union remain in compliance, the Authentication in Internet Banking Environment topic was recently added to the ACH/Electronic Payments channel.

To find out more about the authentication in internet banking, visit League InfoSight.

CUNA releases 12-question credit union overdraft survey

The survey was developed in response to an overdraft protection investigation launched in March by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).  CFPB distributed survey/questionnaires to financial institutions seeking comment on how current overdraft protection policies affect consumers.
 
The CUNA survey requests basic information on the credit union's asset size, and what types of overdraft programs are offered to members.  More specific questions addressing how members are made aware of available overdraft protection programs and how members are alerted to the possibility that a transaction may trigger an overdraft fee are also among the survey questions.

The CFPB's overdraft project is particularly focused on addressing the practice of re-ordering purchases and payments to maximize overdraft fee charges, on whether consumers can anticipate and avoid overdraft fees, and on how differences in the way banks and credit unions disclose and market overdraft programs may affect opt-in rates.  The CFPB plans to use overdraft comments from consumers, financial institutions, and interested parties to craft new overdraft fee disclosures and rules, assist with policymaking on overdraft practices, and to prioritize the bureau's regulatory and education work.

The CUNA survey is voluntary and strictly anonymous.  CUNA is requesting all responses be completed by Friday, April 27.

          Communications News
          New audio, video available on LSCU website

          Credit unions have four new pieces of multimedia to view this week. The State GAC in Alabama provided attendees with two opportunities to speak with lawmakers about public deposits, the tax exemption, and to begin building relationships. LSCU VP, Marketing and Communications Mike Bridges takes credit unions into the GAC meeting and the visits with lawmakers. Bridges talks with two credit union executives who say that the GAC gave them a much better view of the issues and how they matter to their credit unions. Visit the LSCU Video Center to watch. 

          The League also posted the Herb Wegner award videos for  Suncoast Schools FCU CEO Tom Dorety and LEVERAGE partner Invest in America. Dorety received the Wegner Lifetime Achievement award for his service to Suncoast Schools and the credit union movement. The video looks back at his career and all he has done for credit unions. Invest in America received a Wegner award for its credit union discount program where credit union members receive discounts on General Motors vehicles, as well as other programs. View both videos in the LSCU Video Center.

          A new LSCU audio podcast looks at the Alabama Credit Union Secret Meals for Kids program. Alabama CU has been secretly placing food in school children's backpacks to ensure they have meals over the weekend. The program has grown to include more than 1,000 children.

          Second Cooperative Image Campaign ad to be produced this week

          The Cooperative Image Campaign will have a second TV ad after this week. Scout Branding Company of Birmingham will produce the second commercial titled "Coffee." It follows the same actor from the first ad as he shows, once again, that consumers should know what a credit union is. This new ad will be shown in markets across Alabama and Florida along with the first ad, "Awesome Things." 

          Fundraising will be wrapping up soon. However, credit unions still have the opportunity to contribute to the campaign. The first flight of ads ran in September 2011 and research shows that there was a six-percent rise in awareness in Alabama and an eight-percent rise in awareness in Florida. This was a great start for the campaign. Call Report data shows that 48,000 new members joined a credit union in Alabama and Florida during the third quarter when the ads ran. The average of the first two quarters, before the ads ran, was 20,000 per quarter. More than 65,000 consumers visited www.betternameforbanking.com, the campaign landing website, during the ad flight.

          Learn more about the campaign by visiting the LSCU Cooperative Image webpage. It contains results from the first flight of ads and the 2011 media buys. If you have questions, contact LSCU VP, Marketing and Communications Mike Bridges at 866.231.0545 ext. 1022 or Director, Information Services Amy Jowers at ext. 1020. [ Return to Top ]

          Cooperative Initiatives News
          Chapter Leaders' Retreat sets stage for chapter success

          LSCU VP, Communications & Marketing Mike Bridges discusses this year's focus for the Cooperative Image Campaign.

          Last week, 45 credit union chapter officers and directors representing the 20 chapters across Alabama and Florida gathered in Panama City, FL to share best practices, increase participation among members and non-members, and discuss strategies for making their chapters stronger overall. Because the ongoing growth of the chapter is integral to the strength of the League, each year the League hosts this event and covers all expenses for two chapter officers from each chapter to attend and share their chapter’s events and issues.

          “This is the third meeting of our Chapter Leaders’ Retreat, but the first time all of the chapters have been represented,” said LSCU VP, Cooperative Initiatives Laura Vann, the department that hosts the event and coordinates chapter relations. “The purpose of the meeting is to share ideas, projects, and methods. This year, the level of participation was overwhelming and two days later, we have already seen changes being implemented on the chapter level.”

          LSCU Grassroots & PAC Coordinator Blake Westbrook covers the effectiveness of communication in credit union advocacy.

          The full-day meeting discussed various topics including PAC fundraising, charitable giving (including fundraising strategies and projects), the roles of chapter officers, and board recruiting and retention. One of the many ideas to come out of the meeting was the creation of a Chapter Leaders’ Toolkit, which will be housed under the Chapter Support section of the League website, and will be an ongoing resource for chapters.

          “We were pleased to see so many new faces at this meeting and look forward to continuing to expand the agenda and the feedback we got from this year’s meeting has already let us begin the planning for next year’s event,” said Vann. “Our goal is to keep providing the tools our chapters need to grow and succeed. The stronger they are, the stronger the League and the credit union movement becomes.” [ Return to Top ]

          LEVERAGE News
          Leverage your response time when disasters occur
          Communications with members and employees is critical in the moment of a disaster. We have seen that with the tornadoes that have struck Alabama over the past 14 months. Your members need access to their accounts soon after a disaster strikes.

          LEVERAGE works with strategically aligned partners that help credit unions increase the effectiveness of their disaster recovery plan.

          Telecom Recovery is a pioneer in the rapid recovery of communications after a telecommunications outage, with a unique focus on the restoration of the incoming calls to existing phone numbers. They provide credit unions with the ability to rapidly restore control of incoming calls during any kind of telecom outage. With Telecom Recovery’s Voice Recovery Service™, complete control of incoming calls to all phone numbers can be restored in minutes, allowing callers to be handled in almost any way imaginable, and enabling quick adaptation to changing circumstances on-the-fly, even while calls are in progress.

          Shared branching offers credit unions a solution that provides members with more than 4,000 alternate branches through the CO-OP shared branching engine. This can make a huge impact if your credit union is without power or incapacitated. Members can visit a shared branching location and gain access to much needed funds. By participating in shared branching, credit unions can offer their members an enhancement without the expense of proprietary brick and mortar locations. Many Alabama credit union members utilized shared branching when tornadoes struck Tuscaloosa and northern Alabama last year. And numerous Florida credit union members utilized shared branching when several hurricanes stormed through a few years ago.

          By adopting these two simple strategies, your credit union can be prepared for any disaster that might strike. LEVERAGE encourages you to consider adding Telecom Recovery and shared branching to your disaster recovery plan.

          An untapped loan market for credit unions: healthcare expenses

          LEVERAGE was recently featured on an industry website, CU Insight. Credit unions can play a major role in lending to consumers struggling to handle rising health care expenses. Click the link below to find out how.

          The U.S. government predicts that consumer out-of-pocket healthcare expenses will reach an average of $3,301 a year for each household by 2014, up from $2,500 in 2009. In 2011, this market was estimated to be slightly more than $300 billion, with forecasts predicting growth of more than 20 percent over the next four years. As more consumers find themselves struggling to pay for growing levels of healthcare-related debt, an increasing rate of individuals is turning to high-interest bank loans or credit cards to pay for healthcare costs.

          Enhanced GM program looks to drive more loans to your credit union

          LEVERAGE partner, Invest in America, has recently enhanced its Credit Union Member Discount program from General Motors (GM) to drive more loans to credit unions. Invest in America has increased the program benefits in multiple ways. The new benefits include special employee pricing for credit union employees with non-GM vehicle, web banners, email templates, access to GM special offers, website and social media content, and much more. 

          Credit unions can choose from two levels of participation – Premium or Standard - based on how much marketing they can commit to.  This allows all credit unions to participate and continue to offer this valuable discount and benefit of membership to their members.

          To find out more about the Credit Union Member Discount from GM and how your credit union can take advantage of all it has to offer, click here. [ Return to Top ]

          Insight CU participates in Relay For Life

          Insight Inspire volunteers

          Insight Credit Union selected the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life as its company-wide spring fundraiser for the second year in a row. The Insight Inspire volunteers challenged themselves to raise $7,000 and donate 1,000 volunteer hours to the event which culminated in an 18-hour walk at the Leesburg Relay for Life at Leesburg High School in Leesburg, FL on March 31 – April 1.

          The credit union exceeded its goal by raising more than $8,000, and donating more than 1200 volunteer hours the weekend of the Relay for Life event. According to Insight Credit Union’s President/CEO, George R. Davis, “we are pleased with the success of our spring fundraiser and we couldn’t be happier with the support we received from our members and our families and friends. We plan to continue our efforts in supporting the American Cancer Society at Relay For Life for many years to come.”
