Register Early for THINK 14 in the Big Easy 

CO-OP Financial Services is making it “Big Easy” to register for the THINK 14 conference in the Big Easy, with a $199 “Insider Rate” for credit union employees who act by Aug. 31. 

The $199 rate is 70 percent below the registration fee of $679 for this year’s THINK 13 conference. The THINK 14 conference will be held Monday, May 19-Thursday, May 22, 2014, in New Orleans. Registration can be completed now at

“Due to the growing popularity of THINK, we encourage our clients and colleagues to secure their spots early for next year’s conference, especially at such a low rate,” said Stan Hollen, President/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, which hosts the annual event. “We also want to remind everyone that our THINK website is a year-round resource for creative, actionable ideas to help credit unions serve members better, and operate more profitably.”

In addition to the Insider Rate for THINK 14, CO-OP announced the availability of Change It Up. This white paper details the key points made by featured speakers during THINK 13, and discusses how credit union employees can apply those lessons at their financial institutions. The white paper can be downloaded at no charge at

The most recent THINK conference, held in Chicago, attracted more than 550 credit union industry attendees to hear featured speakers such as Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker. The THINK conference agendas emphasize presentations by thought leaders from outside the credit union field offering fresh perspectives on how to solve a variety of issues within the movement.
