  • Marci Rossel, former chief economist for CNBC.  She will offer insights as to what's next for the U.S. economy.
  • Randy Harrington, CEO of Extreme Arts and Sciences, who specializes in helping financial institutions navigate complex problems. His presentation will address credit unions and the need for evolution.
  • Jim Van Dyke, CEO of Javelin Strategy and Research, a division of Greenwich Associates, who provides strategic insights into customer transactions. He will address new trends in mobile banking.
  • Ed Yardeni, former economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and current president of Yardeni Research Inc., a provider of independent global investment strategy research.  He will discuss Fed action and market reaction as it relates to credit unions.
