Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

It was a great week in Washington, D.C. NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus was packed – twice as large as last year.  We held a fantastic Large CU Summit. And get this – shook hands with friends I hadn’t seen in a long, long time.

It was great to be back together, fighting for our wonderful industry.  We’ll see you back in in ’23!

Now, on to this week’s reading pile.

  • Milk, diapers and checking accounts. Banking comes to Walmart. (Bloomberg)
  • Malcolm Gladwell doesn’t like remote working. (Entrepreneur)
  • US 2- to 30-year curve reaches most inverted level this century. (BNN Bloomberg)
  • The most innovative marketing campaigns of 2022. (FastCompany)
  • New data on shift to remote work. (WSJ) Yes, more are working remotely. No, not everyone is doing it.
  • Who cares? (Godin)
  • Customer service isn’t the problem. A bad culture is. (Shep Hyken)
  • Why do we always focus on the bad stuff? (AWOCS)
  • FIs must focus on four essential trends. (FB)

And I have to give a shout out to my big brother Mike, AKA Doctor D. He's on a medical mission in the Middle East helping some less fortunate folks. Well, their getting a good Doc. And I hope they don't mind hearing about the Steelers and Penn State!  Giving back - that's the good stuff!
