I’ve got a very strong feeling that 2016 will be a good year for all of us! I hear that the economy is in the best shape it’s been in years and that credit unions continue to grow in both members and assets. From all that I read (and I read a lot), CUs are lending like crazy. And they’re building good, solid loan portfolios that will help them grow even stronger in the future.
What I’m feeling most happy with is the editorial content written by some of the brightest professionals in the industry, or as I like to call them “the Credit Union BUSINESS All-Stars.” This is a group of outstanding professionals whose experience, advice and counsel is widely sought after by credit union executives. We’ve been building on the group for many years. I love it when exceptional people agree to write real business information for “CU BUSINESS”!
Case in Point: Kenneth Bator, MBA, begins what I hope will become a long-term franchise in this issue of “CU BUSINESS” with his new regular monthly column, “CU Training.” I’ve known Ken for many years and have always admired his style, which is First Class! Ken has more than 20 years of experience in helping organizations make money, save money and survive internal challenges and tough economic conditions.
