CUNA announces session at ACUC on regulatory threats
MADISON, Wis. (5/10/11)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) announced Monday that a new general session about regulatory threats will be added to its 2011 America’s Credit Union Conference & Expo (ACUC) in San Antonio, Texas. Considered the signature event for credit union innovation and leadership, the ACUC’s theme is Big Time: Big Ideas and Big Opportunities. On June 21, the new general session will feature vital topics concerning regulatory threats to credit unions’ financial health, including interchange, defending the credit union tax exemption, the consumer financial protection agency, corporate credit union stabilization and member business lending. A panel of CUNA experts including Bill Hampel, senior economist; John Magill, senior vice president of legislative affairs; Mary Dunn, senior vice president and deputy general counsel; and Ryan Donovan, vice president of legislative affairs, will brief the audience on the latest regulatory and legislative updates and follow with a question-and-answer session. “Regulatory pressures are front-of-the-mind issues for credit unions,” said Dick Ensweiler, president/CEO of the Texas Credit Union League. “Despite the economy, credit unions have been there to support our members. Our commitment to service is what sets us apart. And protecting our ability to provide that high level of service is critical to our future. I’m pleased to be hearing from CUNA’s experts on the latest news from Washington and what we need to do to help ensure our future in the financial services marketplace.” This year’s ACUC also will hold a special session on supplemental capital. In identifying financial strategies that allow credit unions to achieve sustainable growth, CUNA Mutual leader Jon Lass will link financial strategies to competitive value propositions that can help credit union management avoid an increasingly crowded financial services marketplace. Harriet May, chair of CUNA’s board, will lead a general session on Tuesday. “I am looking forward to hearing from the speakers and the audience at this year’s conference,” May said. “The content of the ACUC program is sure to energize our movement and inspire all of us as we move forward together.” For more information, use the links.
