An Expert’s View of the Economy—October 24

As credit unions come out of the persistent business downturn the nation has been facing, managers in every business discipline must pay special attention to economic forces and market pressures.  Whether they lend or collect, recruit or manage staff, negotiate or market their institution, or comply with regulations, these forces alter the playing field.  What can credit union management staff expect to see next?  And how do we begin to plan for the impact it will have on all functional area?

On Thursday, October 24, the Credit Union Center will host an event - An Expert's View of the Economy -- at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough, MA, bringing each of its Network members and CEOs into one venue. Mike Schenk, the vice president of economics for CUNA, is our presenter for the program.  Mr. Schenk is a nationally recognized economist and is regularly interviewed by the media for stories appearing in national news outlets including: The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch, CNBC, Reuters, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Dow Jones News Service, and USA Today.  He has presented for the Association at conferences in the past, and he is an outstanding resource whom we are excited to have for this program.

This is the last week to register for the event.  The day involves a national speaker discussing a subject of strategic importance to all of us, but it will also include the chance to discuss challenges within your own functional areas and network/discuss those challenges with other disciplines.  Please click here to register
