California/Nevada Credit Union Leagues Chief Economist Dwight Johnston visited us on the program to provide us with the latest California and Nevada credit union spending and savings trends report for Q3 2018.
Overall, it's business as usual, Dwight says, as members continue taking on various types of first mortgages, home equity loans, new and used auto loans, credit cards, and personal loans. Members are also trying to save money using credit unions to transact purchases and bill pay.
Even though year-over-year growth is continuing, Dwight adds that things are starting to slow down as the rumored recession looms toward the end of the year. So we wrapped up discussing the big picture for credit unions as the 2019 concludes.
A compelling conversation for sure, so check it out and let us know your thoughts.
The Cooperative Trust Manager Lauren Culp (leader of the renowned Crashers) joins us on the program to share the group's many activities occurring at next month's CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
We also discussed how she achieved the record number of Crashers "crashing" GAC this year -- a whooping 100 to celebrate the program's 10th anniversary.
Then we concluded with how they keep track of former Crashers, how the program has benefited their careers (where are they now?), and a possible Crasher Reunion gathering. That said, check out this "Follow a Crasher" infographic on The Cooperative Trust's website, which follows the career paths of three former Crashers.
Enjoy and let us know your thoughts. And don't forget to sit down with these young overachievers if you're attending GAC next month. Many of them could be the industry's future leaders. Pass on your knowledge, as it only makes the industry that much better.
