MADISON, Wis. (4/16/15)--Top CUNA economists will help credit unions understand and stay out in front of the changing economic conditions at the CUNA Economics and Investments Conference in San Diego, Aug. 10-12.
"To manage risk and increase growth, credit union decision-makers must understand how current economic developments, including rising market interest rates, are likely to affect interactions with members and financial and operational results," said Mike Schenk, CUNA vice president of economics and statistics.
"Through targeted breakout sessions, the CUNA Economics and Investments Conference uncovers the numbers behind the dynamics of a changing economy, allowing attendees to analyze the current environment and more effectively explore potential strategic responses for the coming year," he added.
CUNA Chief Economist and Policy Officer Bill Hampel and CUNA Senior Economist Perc Pineda will join Schenk to discuss current economic conditions and provide a credit union-specific economic update during the three-day event. Their advice will guide attendees in managing their credit unions' finances and investment strategies based off the latest market data and trends.
