ViClarity's CUMA Conference Live Diaries
11.00am (Ogie) – Some very interesting talks on day 2 of CUMA. I just attended a seminar on FRS 102 which was very informative. The final tea & coffee break is coming up at 11.30 so be sure to call over to the ViClarity stand before it all wraps.
9.00am (Tracy) – Good morning from day 2 at the CUMA conference. We had a great evening at the GALA dinner, beautiful food provided by the Hodson Bay Hotel and it was great meeting even more of the Credit Union officials throughout the night. Now it’s back to the exhibit stand for day 2, we still have plenty to talk about so don’t forget to call to stand 31 before the day is out.
—- DAY 1 —-
6.00pm (Ogie) It’s time to give away our competition price. Fintan from Tralee Credit Union is conducting the draw….and the winner is Carole Mulcahy from Link Credit Union. Well done Carole who walks away with a FitBit Alta.
4.15pm (Tracy) – Just after another tea break here at CUMA. Looking forward to the final talk of the day on “maximising your management team”. That will just about wrap up day one of CUMA and we will then be getting ready for the GALA Dinner this evening.
3.00pm (Mark) – Getting a lot of interest and enquiries about our new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) module. Call over to the ViClarity stand and any member of the team would be happy to go through it in more detail. We are always looking ahead to ensure our Credit Union customers will be covered for new regulations.
1.45pm (Ogie) – In the middle of a really interesting talk from Galvin D’alton on the area of Cybersecurity. Another important module offered to Credit Unions from ViClarity is the Cybersecurity module. It enables Credit Unions to Identify, Detect, Analyse, Resolve and Prevent Cyberattacks.
1.00pm (Tracy) – Just about to sit down to a lovely lunch provided by The Hodson Bay Hotel. Don’t forget to enter our FitBit competition. How many jelly beans in the jar? You tell me 🙂
11.00am (Ogie) – It’s been a busy morning here at CUMA. There has been plenty of interest around our new module in which we have developed with EisnerAmper. Dean and I are happy to go through it in more detail at the ViClarity stand. Here we are with a member of Athlone Credit Union.
10.00am (Mark) – Call over to stand 31 for your chance to win a FitBit Alta. All you have to do is guess how many jelly beans are in the jar….I know for a fact if the jelly beans were back in the office there would be nothing left in the jar after Neil & Aidan.
9.30am (Tracy) – Tim Molan, Chairperson at CUMA is in the process of giving his opening address at the conference. A familiar face has come to see us at stand 31, Margaret Heffernan from Rathkeale & District Credit Union. Pictured below with Mark from ViClarity holding an image of Deadly Dan The Macro Man which includes all important updates from ViClarity. Unfortunately Deadly Dan The Macro Man couldn’t make it to the conference today, he is busy using his powers back at the ViClarity office.
8am (Tracy) – We are finally set up and ready for the day. Below we have Ogie Sheehy, CEO of ViClarity joined by Dean Roche from our partners at EisnerAmper. Dean and Ogie will be providing details of the new Credit Union module which they have come together to develop. Call to stand 31 for more information.
5am (Mark) – Early rise for us down in the Kingdom of Kerry as we set out for Athlone for the Spring edition of the Credit Union Managers Association (CUMA) Conference at the Hodson Bay Hotel. This is my first CUMA conference and I am looking forward to meeting all of the Credit Union officials. We have a lot to talk about over the day as ViClarity have a number of new modules and exciting announcements to bring you. Stay tuned to our live diaries for more throughout the day.
