Is there a way to determine if a credit union is getting the most from an overdraft protection program? What other fees can help a credit union’s bottom line and would be considered fair and reasonable to members? The session will offer examples of what one credit union did to increase their non-interest income by tens of thousands of dollars each month. The webinar will be facilitated by Shari Storm of Verity CU, who was a former member of Filene's prestigious i3 team.
