CUNA economists to zero in on economy at ACUCandE
MADISON, Wis. (4/2/08)--Worried about how your credit union will fare in the challenging economic environment? Power sessions will address the economic challenges and opportunities during America's Credit Union Conference & Expo (ACUC&E), to be held in New York City June 29-July 2. The event is sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Bill Hampel, CUNA's senior vice president and chief economist, and Mike Schenk, vice president of CUNA's economics and statistics, will present "An Economic Outlook: The Challenges and Opportunities for Credit Unions." They will provide the outlook for both the economy and credit unions and discuss how long and deep the economic slowdown will be and how it will affect credit unions. Another power session, "From Crises and Conundrums to Survival and Success: A New Era in Financial Services," will focus on key questions facing credit unions today and how credit unions will emerge from what could be a far-reaching period of change. "In Debt We Trust: Subprime Lending Crisis, Double Financial Bubble, and U.S. Consumer-led Recession" will be presented by Robert Manning, research professor and director, Rochester Institute of Technology. He will review the impact of easy credit, changing patterns and debt levels of American households, and the subprime mortgage debacle. ACUC&E will have 22 more power sessions on a variety of topics. Keynote speakers will be Susan Packard, co-founder of HGTV, the House and Garden network; Steve Farber, author of The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership; and Dan Heath, author of Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die.
