Brandi Stankovic shared her thoughts i the recent CU Journal article about strategic planning.

"Credit unions need to be maximizing their very thin margins," she said. "One way to accomplish this is by examining enterprise risk management in order to lend to those who need it most."

Other areas of strategic focus at CUs need to include growth in membership, business development and outreach, Stankovic counseled. "We are seeing several institutions seeking expansion of services and charters, or they are seeking mergers or avoiding being merged. Sometimes lost in the shuffle – but shouldn't be – is growth by leadership development. Credit unions should look at strategic planning as a time to be creating a high-performing board and executive team."

It truly is a joyous occasion when one of your own is selected for as prestigious an award as the Jim Likens Award. Patsy VanOuwerkerk's tireless, valiant effort to improve the credit union industry is matched by few within it. VanOuwerkerk's drive and ambition were innate, but how she would accomplish her goals were still a mystery, when she attended WCMS. She soon found a direction, due to her once professor, now friend and colleague, Jim Likens. During VanOuwerkerk's commencement speech she said a few words that help put it all into perspective. "His message of head and heart resonated with me and I managed my credit unions with attention to both. I know I was a better leader because of WCMS and Jim." Again, congratulations Patsy, we couldn't be more proud!
