NCUA’s Chief Economist to Present at CUES/NWUCA Executive Summit

In this video, NCUA Chief Economist John Worth shares NCUA’s review of recent key economic developments and what they might mean to credit unions.

Northwest credit union CEOs and CFOs will have a rare opportunity to share high level dialogue with the National Credit Union Administration’s Chief Economist later this month.

John Worth has been added to the lineup at the Executive Summit sponsored by the CUES Oregon/Washington Council and the Northwest Credit Union Association, July 30-August 1 in Sunriver, Oregon.

Worth’s presence should generate interesting conversation for attendees about the timely issue of Comprehensive Capital Analysis requirements. In addition, Worth’s economic forecasts and analysis of trends are factors the NCUA considers in establishing its policy — including the pending risked-based capital rule and looming guidance around interest rate risk management.

In a video posted to the NCUA’s YouTube Channel on June 30, Worth noted that interest rate risk “should also be a concern for all credit unions that might, through potential Share Insurance Fund premiums, have to pay for the difficulties brought on by the decisions of a minority of institutions.”

The CUES OR/WA Council/NWCUA Executive Summit presentations and speakers take a deep dive into issues that are concerning to credit union leaders, while the agenda also allows attendees time to enjoy the amenities of Sunriver Resort with colleagues and family.

Payment systems, member loyalty, a CEO’s perspective on risk-based capital and legal issues are also on the agenda.

Other speakers and topics include:

  • FISERV’s Mark Seivwright, presenting on the future of payment systems;
  • MasterCard’s Lisa Fisher, presenting on the topic of payment solutions to help credit unions build member and brand loyalty; and
  • Farleigh Wada Witt’s Brian Witt, presenting a legal update.

A downloadable registration form for the Executive Summit is available online.
