Americas CU Conference adds pressing-issues sessions
MADISON, Wis. (5/1/09)--With so many fast-changing legislative, regulatory and economic issues now on credit unions' front burners, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has added a new slate of sessions to the already packed America's Credit Union Conference and Expo, scheduled for June 21-24 in Boston. "This is one of the most difficult years most professionals will ever have to face in a lifetime of credit union involvement," said Dan Mica, CUNA president/CEO. "The issues seem to change almost daily, and the information needed to be proactive is in a constant state of change, which is why we felt it was important to add these sessions to help prepare credit unions for the balance of this year and next," he added. New breakout sessions will include:
* Critical issues update with CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica; * Legislative/regulatory update--covers key credit union policy issues including spreading out credit unions' costs associated with the corporate credit union network, bankruptcy, regulatory restructuring, and interchange fee income; * TARP 101--analyzes the Treasury Department's Troubled Asset Relief Program for banks and its impact on credit unions; * Net worth restoration plan primer--explores the issues behind developing a restoration plan and what it means in terms of restoring net worth; * Facing up to problems in the Credit Union System--examines the future of corporate credit unions, the National Credit Union Administration's approach to assisting them, and the effect on credit unions; * "How to" on the Obama mortgage modification plan; and * New examination issues.
