Join us when Steve Rick, Director and Chief Economist at TruStage (formerly CUNA Mutual Group), helps us understand what really is going on with the U.S. economy. 

The U.S. economy has done well in 2023 despite the Federal Reserve raising interest rates at the fastest pace in 40 years. Inflation has been reduced but remains above the Fed's 2% target.  What will higher interest rates do to the economy in 2024 and beyond? Are fundamental changes in the jobs market apt to cause long-term labor shortages and wage pressures?  This presentation will cover all the relevant economic issues currently being addressed by households and policy makers.

Get answers to these and many more economic and financial questions at the next UWRA economic presentation and have your questions ready.

Steve’s primary responsibilities at TruStage includes conducting strategic research, analysis, and forecasting of the financial services industry with special emphasis on the consumer and credit union markets.

His forecasts serve as a starting point for the strategic planning process and help to create a clear understanding of the underlying trends and links between the general economy, the financial services industry, and policy owners. Steve publishes the Credit Union Trends Report, a monthly “pulse check” on the economic state of the credit union movement. He has authored a textbook on asset-liability management for credit union executives.

Steve is one of our most popular presenters, so this promises to be an enlightening and entertaining session on our economy.

If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please send to Program Coordinator Joan Gillman at and Kay Reuter-Krohn at by Wednesday, December 13, 2023.
