NCUA Chairman Todd Harper joined us on the show to partake in a bit of a lightning round of trends, topics, and issues occurring in credit unions today.
But before we embarked on the rapid fire of topics, Todd shared his personal thoughts on Ukraine and if he has been in contact with Ukrainian American credit unions regarding their status -- as well as what we can do domestically to assist in any way.
As far as the lightning round goes (for part 1 of our conversation), Todd covered the latest cybersecurity concerns for credit unions today with Russian cyberattacks being one of the main concerns right now.
We also talked about cryptocurrency and the looming regulations surrounding this digital currency -- and what it all means to credit unions not only right now but in the near future, as well.
We covered a lot in part one, but stay tuned for part two, as we discuss overdraft fees (the elimination of), credit unions buying banks activity, and mergers and acquisitions continuing to impact the industry.
In part three, we'll cover succession planning, consumer financial protection, and appraisal bias in the mortgage lending arena. Unfortunately, it's very real and happening all too often.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts. And stay tuned for parts two and three coming up!
