WASHINGTON (11/18/08)--The challenges presented to credit unions as a result of the financial crisis will be addressed in a special live nationwide webinar featuring Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica, Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET. The medium will allow credit unions to correspond directly with Mica during the event. The Internet-based video conference--open to all CUNA-affiliated credit unions at no charge--will focus on the financial crisis and how credit unions can leverage their "white hat image" to help minimize the impact of the crisis on credit union members, as well as the nation itself. "We are developing a vision for how credit unions can work for their members and the nation, through the Congress and the regulatory agencies, to help them through these difficult times," Mica said. "The Congress will have a 'working majority,' meaning that if they decide to do something quickly, they can move very fast. We are going to need to be ready to act in any number of ways."
