Caroline Willard, President and CEO of Cornerstone Credit Union League will be the guest speaker. 

Willard previously served as executive vice president of markets and strategy for CO-OP Financial Services in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.

“Having spent the last 10 years at the nation's largest CUSO, it is an honor to be given the opportunity to serve credit unions at one of the largest leagues in the country,” Willard said in a league prepared statement. “This role will give me a chance to tap into what I have learned at both CO-OP Financial Services and at American First Credit Union, where I served on the executive team for five years.

Willard’s vision includes positioning Cornerstone as an influencer at the national level to create better efficiencies in serving a changing credit union marketplace, according to the Cornerstone league’s prepared statement. In addition to ensuring that Cornerstone delivers relevant services to members and building the league’s legislative and grassroots advocacy, Willard also plans to assure the value proposition for Cornerstone and CUNA is clearly differentiated,.
