For all the talk about payments innovation, advancements in the U.S. have been mostly confined to the front end-interface. PayPal, Apple Pay, online bill payment, stored credentials within e-commerce sites and digital wallets all feed into the tried-and-true debit, credit, ATM, and automated clearinghouse (ACH) networks, where the role is to execute the transaction.
Even a breakthrough like Check 21 focused on altering the means in which we presented paper items, not creating a different method of funds settlement. A new set of payment rails has not been introduced in the U.S. since the advent of the ACH network in the 1970s.
Until late 2017, this is when The Clearing House (TCH) officially launched its real-time payments system, branded as RTP. This updated technology represents a major undertaking many years in the making, with significant market development efforts still ahead. While initial volumes remain low in part because of a controlled rollout, TCH has established an ambitious goal of ubiquity by 2020, including endpoint access spanning all U.S. financial institutions.
These developments raise a litany of questions for credit unions: Should we get involved? If so, how? Will my members demand real-time services, and which areas will first gain traction? What are the benefits, challenges, and operational impacts of a real-time model?

In July 2019, the current economic recovery will surpass 10 years and become the longest expansion in U.S. history. This begs the question: Are we due for a recession? While economic recoveries do not die of old age, many economists, forecasters and business leaders predict a recession by the end of 2020. In this session, we'll discuss the economic indicators that are causing concern, and review the latest credit union trends and forecasts from CUNA economists.
