Economic trends impacting lending and ways to identify risk, prevent fraud after data breaches and comply with lending regulations were covered yesterday during NAFCU's inaugural Lending Conference. Today, conference sessions will focus on marketing and compliance strategies, indirect lending, attracting millennial members and auto lending.

The association's new Lending Conference gives attendees the opportunity to hear from industry leaders on strategies to boost credit union loan portfolios and changing regulations that will affect lending opportunities.

Here are a few of the experts attendees will hear from today:

  • Nate Roark, senior director at TrueCar, will detail the auto lending process and opportunities for credit unions to take advantage of trends in the market.
  • Christian Widhalm, senior vice president of sales and marketing at LendKey, will offer insight on how credit unions can attract millennial members through digital lending services and a better understanding their personal and financial characteristics.
  • Christopher Pippett, partner at Fox Rothschild who is focused on the financial services industry, will inform attendees about recent regulatory changes to member business lending (MBL) and how credit unions can prepare for potential issues.

NAFCU's Lending Conference continues through tomorrow with sessions on credit union service organizations and how they can bolster lending portfolios, innovation in the lending space and reducing member effort in the borrowing process.
