Economic, Regulatory, and Industry Outlook for 2013 and Beyond

Hear from NCUA’s newly appointed Chief Economist John Worth on issues affecting credit unions today and what may be coming up on the horizon for 2013.

After a summer of economic and political turbulence in the U.S. and a fall marked by rising concerns about European economies, credit unions should take stock of the economic situation and reconsider their economic outlook. The economic situation and outlook should play a key role in strategic planning, business development, capital management, setting allowance for loan losses, and other activities. 

In his discussion, Dr. Worth will cover:

  • Economic Opportunities and Outlook – Focusing on the current and future economic environment U.S. and in N.J.
  • Regulatory and Industry Outlook 
  • CU performance
  • NCUA’s current activities
  • Motivation behind recent decisions
  • Important and emerging issues for CUs in 2013 and beyond

This session will also  include a roundtable discussion facilitated by Paul Gentile, President of the New Jersey Credit Union League, to inquire on what relevant topics should be considered for the 2013 Executive Leadership Sessions as well as other timely topics.
