Meet the 2017 Iowa Credit Union Convention Crashers
Congratulations to the 21 individuals who have been chosen to Crash Convention Sept. 13 - 15 in Des Moines! These rising stars were picked from a record number of more than 40 applicants for the seventh annual Crash event, and will have the opportunity to attend all Convention sessions and specific crasher sessions. Thanks to additional funding approved by the ICUL Board of Directors, the number of Crashers this year nearly doubled. Meet the 2017 Crashers.

PolicyWorks' Restructure
Aggressively growing PolicyWorks compliance business has been the focus of strategic conversations and recent strategic planning by the ICUL, AMC and PolicyWorks boards and leadership. This vision has led to a strategic decision and a bit of a milestone for PolicyWorks. 
  • PolicyWorks will be formally restructured to become two independent operating companies of ICUL/AMC, with one company focused on advocacy and one company focused on regulatory compliance. 
  • Since PolicyWorks' inception more than 10 years ago, Justin Hupfer has led both sides of PolicyWorks' business. Moving forward, Justin will focus solely on leading the advocacy company and a CEO search will begin for the compliance company to grow and scale the business to best serve credit unions. Until a new compliance CEO is hired, Justin will continue leading both companies. 
  • Your credit union's dues-based compliance services will continue to be provided by PolicyWorks' regulatory compliance company. 
  • Responsibilities for the League's advocacy efforts will be led by Justin Hupfer. 

We feel this restructure maximizes value to Iowa credit unions, creating greater continuity for both PolicyWorks companies in addition to an increased focus on growth and exploration of the regulatory compliance business.
