Best Benefit Ever: Economic Updates for Credit Union Experts

By / May 5, 2015 (jwohlfeil/ThinkStock)

Members of the Credit Union National Association can stay up to date on the economic issues affecting credit unions with the organization’s new monthly Economic Update videos.

What’s the benefit? Thanks to a new benefit sponsored by the Credit Union National Association CFO Council, professionals in the credit union industry will be able to keep their fingers on the pulse of the economy and the factors influencing their work. All affiliated CUNA credit unions and leagues can view monthly 15-minute Economic Update videos that highlight the most important news in the world of economics and feature insights from CUNA economists. “We know how important it is for credit unions to have access to the latest economic trends and data,” Bill Hampel, CUNA’s chief policy officer, said in a statement. “By providing Economic Update videos as a CUNA membership benefit, we ensure that our members have the knowledge and insights they need for leading as financial institutions.”

Why it works for members: Economics is a vast, complicated field, and not all of the developments within it trickle down to everyone in the credit union industry. But with the Economic Update videos, CUNA members can get the latest news that’s most pertinent to them in a quick, digestible format.

Other perks: CUNA members can also stay informed about economic policy with the association’s collection of electronic and print publications. For professional development, members can take advantage of marketing and education resources and participate in a variety of exclusive events and promotions.
