In a slight departure from our typical blog style, I’d like to comment, if briefly about the news that I’m keeping up with. Part of what we do at TEAM Resources is try to help our clients, and our followers keep an eye on what’s going on that might impact the financial services industry. Lately, the trusted news resources that I follow have been noting some economic trends that I think are worth paying attention to and sharing. For example, here’s a recent headline from David Ader at Bloomberg:
The U.S. Yield Curve Is Sending the Right Signals
The economy is exhibiting classic late-cycle behavior, and a recession may not be too far off.
With this information we encourage you to consider how this impacts your organization particularly as we head into the “typical” strategic planning season.
Beyond the U.S. yield curve, I want to also point you towards something that Kevin Smith has in the works: The Board Governance Video Series. This is coming soon to the TEAM Resources website. This will be a valuable, ongoing resource for credit union boards and executives. Check out the preview below or here.
