Gina Bleedorn brings her industry-leading branching and marketing expertise to CCUA learning lab on “Growing Influence: Smarter Branch Network Design & Marketing”

Wednesday, September 1, 2021 – In the upcoming IMPACT Conference, the Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) is bringing together the credit union community and leaders from across Canada to collaborate and connect. Sharing industry best practices, the impressive lineup of speakers takes on priority topics impacting credit unions, including current market trends, mission-critical growth and attracting new members. Through a series of keynotes and learning labs, the four-day virtual conference delivers best practices and principles to Canada’s credit union decision-makers. 

In her presentation on smart branch network design, Adrenaline’s Chief Experience Officer Gina Bleedorn discusses how to be competitive in a post-COVID world, including the critical role of growth through new opportunities in new markets with new branches. She says, “Canada is a country in the fortunate position of having the highest credit union membership in the world, with one out of every three consumers calling themselves a credit union member. But changing market dynamics are making progress even more vital, beyond the sector’s typical 3% annual growth.”
