CUNA Economics & Investment Conference registration opens
MADISON, Wis. (1/9/13)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Economics & Investments Conference, to be held Aug. 4-7 in San Francisco, will provide a credit union-specific perspective of the U.S. economy, with an eye toward the future.

Featured speakers include Bill Hampel, CUNA senior vice president of research and policy analysis and chief economist; Mike Schenk, CUNA vice president of economics and statistics;  and Steve Rick, CUNA senior economist, who will provide facts and numbers on the U.S. economy and how they will impact credit unions in the coming fiscal year.

All three of CUNA economists are widely quoted in the national news media, providing a credit union perspective to national economic news.

"Every year our economists draw large crowds for their highly regarded insight into today's economic realities and tomorrow's economic future," said Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer Education. The conference will provide "a wealth of information from these CUNA economists. Over the course of this three-day workshop credit union professionals will get an entire year's worth of credit union specific-economic information that they can then use to build their strategic plans and map out their future business initiatives."

They will address these topics:

  • Key players who shape the U.S. economy;
  • Practical tools for managing credit union finances;
  • Investment strategies that will keep credit unions competitive;
  • Asset-liability management techniques; and
  • Current regulatory issues affecting credit unions.
