Musings from the CU Suite

NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Well, hello there. It's been a while. 

I'm happy to return to your inbox with a few thought-provoking articles. I hope you didn't miss me too much!

I will make one plug, though. NAFCU has been busy! We've pivoted our events to the virtual world. And we need you!

The last time our industry came out of an economic crisis, we had to deal with debit card interchange limitations and the  Dodd-Frank legislation.  We need you to attend our Virtual Congressional Caucus this September! We'll set up meetings with lawmakers, and you'll hear from Congressional and Administration leaders.  But again, we need you to share your voice!

Now, on to the reading pile...

  • They earn $200k and complain they are broke. A trend of people making seemingly large amounts of money living paycheck to paycheck. (The Big Picture)
  • Doom scrolling. (Godin)
  • How to ride a bike. Where leadership comes from. (Leadership Freak)
  • Five "member" experience trends that the COVID crisis is accelerating . (Shep Hyken)

  • What Gen Z wants at work. (SmallBizTrends)
