CUNA Pressing Economic Issues Series on 15th of each month
MADISON, Wis. (12/21/11)--The CUNA Pressing Economic Issues Series, featuring Credit Union National Association (CUNA) economists Bill Hampel, Mike Schenk and Steve Rick, will release new presentations on the 15th of each month beginning  in January.

The series gives credit union professionals 30-minute economic updates and commentary every month. Subscribers to the CUNA Pressing Economic Issues Series can stay informed about pressing issues that impact credit unions and discover trends to watch as they prepare themselves for challenges ahead.

"Our executive and board audiences consistently rate presentations from Hampel, Schenk and Rick as engaging and highly informative," said Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer education.

Hampel is the senior vice president of research and policy analysis and chief economist for CUNA. He also writes economic analysis columns that appear in several credit union publications. As an expert on the economy and credit union issues specifically, Hampel is routinely asked by national news outlets to share his economic expertise.

Schenk is vice president of economics and statistics for CUNA. He conducts economic and financial research, and provides support for CUNA's governmental affairs and public relations efforts. Schenk is an expert on the economy and credit union issues, with more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry.

Rick, a senior economist for CUNA, conducts economic research, teaches at credit union schools and conferences, and writes articles for CUNA publications. He facilitates strategic planning sessions for credit union boards and has authored a textbook on asset-liability management. He also is a faculty member of the economics department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
