Tomorrow’s Credit Union Leaders: Will They Be Ready?
Jared Ross, president of LSCU, and Dr. Leff Bonney, Associate Professor of Marketing in the Florida State University College of Business, will discuss the immediate need in credit unions to ensure leaders are being developed now. Mr. Ross sees this as a one of the most important and timely concerns for credit unions today. “We are at a critical point in this industry where there are more leaders retiring and leaving than at any other time- and this will continue for years with Baby Boomer retirements. By 2030, all boomers (the second largest generation at 73 million) will be 65+ years old. Succession planning for leadership positions in credit unions must be done ongoing, with a thoughtful plan and high potential employees must be identified and cultivated as leaders. If not, the best talent will leave (or may have already left) for other opportunities.”

Ross and Bonney will address what credit unions are doing to prepare themselves for filling leadership gaps, and what is at stake if they do not. They will also share examples of the best engagement tactics for emerging leaders and the best ways leaders can learn the most valuable skills to drive the credit union forward.
