CUNA has launched a new Pressing Economic Issues Series, presented by CUNA economists Bill Hampel, Mike Schenk and Steve Rick, that provides 30-minute monthly updates on current economic issues facing credit unions.
The series focuses on keeping credit union board members, management, and staff informed on the most current issues impacting credit unions. In a 30-minute update on the first week of each month, the CUNA economists will share their perspectives on the current economic environment delivered via a recorded presentation.
“CUNA’s panel of economic experts are the most reliable source of up-to-date information on the economic issues facing credit unions,” said Todd Spiczenski, Vice President of The Center for Professional Development. “Their expertise will allow credit unions to stay on top of this ever changing economic environment without having to sift through countless websites and stacks of literature.”
