Written Executive Summary


Economic performance and movement in market interest rates drive credit union operating results and interactions with members. The average duration of U.S. economic recovery is roughly five years in the post-WWII period, but the current expansion is about to start its tenth year.

Can it continue? Will tax cuts fuel inflation pressures? Will fiscal stimulus cause more aggressive Federal Reserve interest rate increases? Will tariffs push the economy into recession?

Join CUNA Chief Economist Mike Schenk to explore implications of key economic developments, potential credit union responses and prospects for future success.  We will also save time for your questions. 

Meet Your Speaker:
