2018 The Next Big Idea Competition

In the toughest competition to date, CU RateReset CEO Keith Kelly once again knocks it out of the park with his 7 minute presentation at the Next Big Idea Competition last week at the NACUSO Network Conference at the Disneyland Hotel.

Two years ago Keith won the competition with CU RateReset. This year he entered with Knocknock, a disruptive digital solution that provides bilateral interaction between the credit union and the member to deliver “just in time offers” based on real time triggers.

CHARITABLE GIVING AT THINK 18 REACHES $191,500, SHATTERING PREVIOUS RECORD FOR CONFERENCE

Transaction Network Services, Inc. Alone Donates $130,000 to CMN Hospitals

A total of $191,500 was raised in charitable and philanthropic donations at CO-OP Financial Services’ THINK 18 Conference held May 7-10 in Chandler, Arizona, including $130,000 from Transaction Network Services, Inc.

The $191,500 in donations broke the previous record by a wide margin, surpassing the THINK 14 total of $126,500. Of this $191,500, a total of $186,500 is being donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and $5,000 is going to the National Credit Union Foundation.

“The $191,500 donated during THINK 18 is a testimony to the people-helping-people ethic of credit unions,” said Todd Clark, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services (www.co-opfs.org), Rancho Cucamonga, California. “It’s not just a slogan; people in this industry really are committed to the well-being of others.”

“TNS is focused on supporting organizations that help provide a brighter future for children,” said Mike Keegan, Chief Executive Officer of TNS (www.tnsi.com), Reston, Virginia. “We initially became involved with CMN Hospitals after seeing the passion of CO-OP and its credit union members for this important cause. We look forward to continuing our support of CMN Hospitals.”

A tradition of the THINK conferences, the 2018 meeting included charitable and philanthropic contributions stemming from four additional sources beyond TNS’ substantial donation to CMN Hospitals:

  • $10,000 through #ShadesUpforKids. A CO-OP initiative, the company donated $10 to CMN Hospitals and the National Credit Union Foundation for every time someone took a selfie with their airplane window shade raised, and then posted to one of their social media accounts. A total of $5,000 each goes to CMN Hospitals and NCUF.
  • $3,000 through entry fees to conference golf tournaments held on May 7 and May 11
  • $18,500 from CO-OP Financial Services as a result of respondents taking a Debit card survey, the results of which were reported during the course of THINK 18.
  • $30,000 raised by CO-OP Shared Branch locations in Michigan and the Washington, D.C. area, through candy bar sales leading up to the conference. 

This THINK 18 charitable giving record coincided with observances during the final session of THINK 18, which marked the tenth anniversary of the CO-OP Miracle Match program. Through this program, CO-OP donates $1 million annually on behalf of its client credit unions to support Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers.
