MADISON, Wis., and WASHINGTON (September 12, 2017) – The September 2017 edition of the CUNA Economic Update is now available. Sponsored by CUNA CFO Council, this month’s update addresses current economic growth as well as what a government shutdown in the future could look like for credit unions and their members.

Jordan van Rijn, senior economist at Credit Union National Association, hosts the update and mentions the developments of the past month, “As unemployment stays low, the economy grows at a stable rate and inflation gradually rises, the outlook is generally positive this month. However, any possibility of a government shutdown needs to be taken into account and you should understand what that means for you and your credit union’s members.”

The CUNA Economic Update is released free each month to CUNA member credit unions. To view the update, visit
