Board of Directors Financial Literacy
Directors are required to:
• have at least a working familiarity with basic finance and accounting practices
• have the ability to read and understand their credit union’s balance sheet and income statement
• have the ability to ask, as appropriate, substantive questions of management and the internal and external auditors
• have an understanding of the risks involved with each of their products and service
To that end, we bring you TWO sessions, Board of Directors' Responsibilities and Issues and Credit Union Problems and Issues.
As you've requested, Harry Black will be with us again in 2015 with two new topics. Harry is a former stockbroker with Merrill Lynch who has been studying investments and economics for over 30 years. He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Mississippi College and an Industrial Engineering degree from Mississippi State University.
Harry receives excellent feedback on the entertaining and educational presentations he makes to national and local credit union conferences. He makes financial topics and investment training interesting, entertaining and easily understandable. He has been called the MacIntosh of money because he presents information credit unions need in such a user friendly way.
Harry has been a member of Mississippi Telco Federal Credit Union since 1977 and has been on the Board of Directors since 1994. He is Treasurer and chairman of the Asset Liability Management Committee and is a key contributor for financial decisions for his $165 million credit union.
THINK is a mantra for one of the world’s leading companies yet only fully utilized by credit union top leaders. Most people seem to be better at doing or directing than thinking or leading. Yet today’s challenging financial climate necessitates high level thinking. This session is based on research from Tim’s Putnam-published book Transformation Thinking and will teach leaders how to think innovatively and creatively.
In this keynote, Tim will provide tips and techniques to increase personal brain power, while demonstrating how to encourage new thinking in times of rapid change. This session will answer questions like – What prevents people from thinking? How do you get others to think? How do you work effectively with co-workers at the opposite end of the thinking spectrum? What are the keys to better thinking? If you’d like better results in your organization, engage with Tim for a stimulating keynote that will inspire collaborative thinking, innovation, and a work environment that fosters on-going creativity and better thinking.
Tim Richardson has been speaking professionally full-time since 1988. He is the author of Jump Starts: Wit and Wisdom to Super Charge Your Day, co-author of Transformation Thinking: Tools and Techniques That Open the Door to Powerful New Thinking, contributing author of Meditations for the Road Warrior and will publish his latest book Living Rich in 2014. He also has published articles and been interviewed for numerous magazines, journals, and business publications. He speaks in the hospitality, healthcare, and fitness industries as his primary markets. He is also founder and president of a Melanoma Foundation started in memory of his best friend (www.BillWalteriii.org). He LOVES his work and also enjoys riding his mountain bike, water skiing, snowboarding, and exploring the Great Smoky Mountains with his wife and six children.
