Representatives of most of the state’s credit unions are in town today and Saturday for the Kansas Credit Union Association’s Annual Meeting.

The event is being held at the Hyatt Regency Wichita, 400 W. Waterman.

It comes following a year in which the industry increased its year-over-year net income by 14 percent, grew loan balances nearly 6 percent and added more than 14,000 members, according to a Callahan & Associates report published earlier this month.

KCUA spokeswoman Susan Dyer said about 350 people representing 48 Kansas credit unions are attending.

There are 101 credit unions in Kansas.

The meeting will include a keynote speech on Saturday by Mark Sievewright, president of Fiserv’s Credit Union Solutions business, who will talk about changes in the payments market — credit, debit and checks — and how credit unions can position themselves to benefit from those changes

Education at the conference will include sessions on the effective use of social media, how to have successful board and CEO partnerships and a primer on credit bureau fraud presented by an FBI agent from Kansas City.

The convention will conclude with an awards ceremony Saturday night in which the association recognizes five credit union executives and volunteer leaders.
