Carrier urges members’ input to Monitor survey

Dec. 21, 2012 – NAFCU is encouraging members to respond to its latest Economic and CU Monitor survey, which will help inform the association in its work on a wide range of credit union legislative and regulatory policy issues in the coming year.

NAFCU Chief Economist David Carrier said the survey is an important tool in the association’s efforts to provide credit unions the information they need to plan and navigate the marketplace.

“The goal of NAFCU's research division is to provide you with the best possible analysis of economic and credit union industry trends, and for that we need your input,” Carrier said in a message Thursday encouraging members’ input. “We rely on your survey responses for our industry analysis and economic forecast.”

Each respondent to the survey will be entered in a drawing for a free iPad.

The current survey seeks answers on credit unions’ participation in remittance services, mortgage activity and involvement in seeking preservation of credit unions’ federally tax-exempt status. Responses are due Jan. 4.
