HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. – 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.
NCUA’s newly appointed Chief Economist John Worth will provide credit union leaders a look at credit unions’ performance, an overview of NCUA’s current activities and the motivation behind them, as well as important and emerging issues for credit unions in 2013 and beyond.
Prior to joining NCUA, Dr. Worth spent nearly a decade at the U.S. Treasury and served as Director of the Office of Microeconomic Analysis between 2003 and 2010 and Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Microeconomics during 2008.
At Treasury, Dr. Worth’s office oversaw policy development and research on entitlements, health care, private pensions, housing issues, and financial crisis response. Dr. Worth has also working as a consultant for Welch Consulting and the RAND Corporation.
Join Worth and your fellow credit union leaders for an informative ELS session being held on December 11th at the League office from 9:00 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Prices for the event are as follows: $179.00 for credit unions over $100 million, $129.00 for credit unions $25 - $100 million, $79.00 for credit unions $10 - $25 million, and $39.00 for credit unions under $10 million. For more information on this session, click here.
