to ample networking opportunities.
Chicago-based Alliant Credit Union was
represented by 11 employees. George Rudolph, senior vice president of
technology and operations of the $9.9 billion credit union, commented, “This is
an educational and relationship building experience that continues to improve
our connection with Symitar exponentially year after year. Core technology is a
credit union’s lifeline and worthy of our time and investment. It is important
that my team take advantage of these educational and developmental
opportunities to know what’s on the technology horizon.
Highlights from the SEC included numerous
sessions led by credit unions sharing technology best practices, and a fintech
panel focused on how to best work with start-ups. Award winning speaker Sam
Glenn, the attitude guy, and fintech consultant, speaker, and author David
Peterson led keynotes focused on the power of a positive work environment and
fostering creativity. Additional themes centered on security, payments, digital
branch strategy, and digital personalization.

SEC is a tremendous opportunity for Symitar’s associates and our diverse user
base to collaborate and work together to achieve great things. The visions and
alliances established at the SEC have seeded many great projects and technology
achievements. As our user base continues to grow, the SEC will remain a
