A Divided Washington and the Cost/Benefit Ratio of Gridlock and Stalemate for
Credit Unions and CUSOs - Dennis Dollar
With the Democrats controlling the House and the Republicans still in a Senate majority, will anything happen in Washington legislatively or is gridlock the operative expectation? And, if so, how does stalemate on legislation both benefit and hurt credit unions in general – and CUSOs in particular? Will the NCUA Board appointments be affected by the lay of the congressional landscape? Former NCUA Chairman and leading credit union consultant Dennis Dollar will share his insider insights into these questions and more in one of NACUSO’s annual sessions with the highest positive feedback.
2019 Regulatory Insiders Panel - Dennis Dollar & Guy Messick
While legislation may be less likely in a Congress with each party controlling a house, the likelihood of regulatory action is always present for credit unions and CUSOs.

The bankers are taking their anti-credit union agenda to some states with regulatory implications. 2019 will not be a boring year on the regulatory front. Leading CUSO attorney Guy Messick and former NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar will provide their analysis of what is taking place in Washington and nationwide on the always important regulatory front.
Team Human - Douglas Rushkoff
There is an anti-human agenda embedded in our markets and technologies, which has turned them from means of human connection into ones of isolation and repression. Our corporations and the culture they create glorify individualism at the expense of cooperation, threatening the sustainability not just of our economy but our species. In this talk, Douglas Rushkoff will reveal this agenda at work and invites us to remake society toward human ends rather than the end of humans. Rushkoff will uncover how the intentional repression of humanity impacts diverse sectors of society, explaining how money went from being a means of transaction to a means of extraction and how education transformed from the ideal of learning into an extension of occupational training. Digital age technologies have only amplified these trends, making our systems more brittle and presenting the greatest challenges yet to our collective autonomy: robots taking our jobs, algorithms directing our attention, and social media influencing our votes. Rushkoff will also show the role the CUSOs, in particular, can play in restoring a human economy's emphasis on prosperity and flow, rather than the extractive economy's obsession with extraction and growth. There’s still time to think before we hit the switch and automate ourselves out of existence. Rushkoff will explain the role that we can play in reconnecting our members with their essentially social nature, asserting a place for humans in the emerging landscape, and forging solidarity with the others who understand that being human is team sport.
