Put Your Wallet Back in Your Pocket; A Better Way to Do Vendor Management
Includes a Live Event on 12/14/2021 at 10:00 AM (EST)
The present vendor management process as it is implemented by most credit unions is inefficient and ineffective at managing the major risk credit unions face: competitive pressure. The webinar will discuss how vendor management, done differently, can make a huge positive impact on credit unions to help them survive and thrive.
