CUNA Chief Economist Bill Hampel and Consumer Federation of America Executive Director Stephen Brobeck will disclose the results of the survey and will also offer tips for prudent consumer credit card use. The survey, which was conducted between Jan. 29-31, reveals consumer awareness of recent changes to the terms of lines of credit, interest rates, fees, and other terms of credit account agreements. The survey also asked whether or not consumers acted as a result of these changes.
