One size does not fit all. More specifically, credit unions with different asset sizes often have different needs. Smaller credit unions can’t always afford to have the same in-house staff their larger counterparts do... a dedicated collection and bankruptcy compliance specialist, for example, isn’t cheap. And yet, every credit union would benefit from knowing how to improve their collection practices while complying with state and federal laws.
Fortunately, you have Takisha and the Haynes Circle. The Haynes Circle was created specifically to support Ohio’s smaller credit unions through programs, outreach, leadership opportunities, and more. If you are a credit union with assets of $35M or less, you should absolutely be involved. And you should also get to know Takisha Martin, the League’s Administrative Support Specialist, who spends a lot of her time working with the Haynes Circle on your behalf.
Which is why you have the Haynes Circle Webinars. Since their inception in 2012, Takisha has been coordinating the Haynes Circle’s quarterly webinars. Each complimentary webinar is dedicated to a topic Takisha knows is weighing on the minds of small credit unions. How? Because she meets with the Haynes Circle Steering Committee, monitors discussions in Huddle, reviews the annual member satisfaction surveys, collects input from her fellow League staff, and generally keeps her ears open. And she does this for one reason: to make sure you get exactly what you need. No matter how small your credit union is.
Want to see for yourself? Mark your calendar for March 22 at 10:00 a.m., when Attorney Michael D. Stultz from the law firm Meyer & Kerschner will teach you how to improve your collection practices while complying with state and federal laws. To register, log on to the League’s website and click “Event Registration” in the Quick Links section.
In the meantime, we have several years’ worth of webinars available in our online archive, ready to watch whenever your schedule allows. And if you have any suggestions for a webinar, or any questions about the Haynes Circle, just drop Takisha an email.
