“I am elated by this opportunity to serve FMS and its members,” said Schlangen. “I am convinced of the organization’s relevance to the financial services industry, and credit unions in particular.”

FMS is a non-profit association providing education, networking and other essential resources to finance professionals. Its membership includes 1,800 professionals from accounting, finance, sales, marketing and operations.

“We are proud of Kevin’s appointment to the FMS Board of Directors,” said Greg Moore, EVP of Member Relations for Catalyst. “It highlights one of the many ways Catalyst experts bring value to the credit union movement, as well as the caliber of our team.”

“The greatest benefit I have experienced as an FMS member is the educational content,” said Schlangen. “As a member of the Advisory Committee that formulated the agenda for this year’s Forum, I was impressed by the organization’s commitment to providing relevant, engaging content.”

Networking is another key benefit for FMS members, said Schlangen. “In my role of connecting credit unions with solutions to help them succeed, the ability to engage with financial service professionals provides key insights into their needs and challenges.” He notes that FMS members share their experiences uncovering solutions and overcoming roadblocks with each other as well.

As a Director, Schlangen hopes to help increase membership: “FMS has so much to offer to financial professionals. I want to introduce non-member credit unions to the many resources FMS provides.”
