Economic and Industry Update: Challenges and Opportunities (Virtual Session)

Session description: As credit unions start to look to 2022 after a challenging 2020 and 2021, this session will focus on a quick update of what the economy is projecting for next year, but more importantly, ideas on how credit unions can focus on what we can control to prosper and grow in this ever changing environment we call Financial Services. The session will spend time discussing ideas to navigate these challenging waters together.
