NAFCU, CUs continue meetings with Fed banks
NAFCU Chief Economist and Vice President of Research Curt Long and member credit unions are continuing to meet with Federal Reserve banks to discuss various industry issues, including the economic outlook, interest rates, lending landscape and faster payments. They met yesterday with Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard, and will meet Friday with Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric Rosengren.
Both Bullard and Rosengren are currently voting members on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) – the Fed's monetary policy-setting arm. The committee met last week and left rates unchanged, and also indicated it will continue to reduce the Fed's securities holdings.
Long and a group of NAFCU members also met last month with Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari.
NAFCU continues to engage with the Fed regarding its work to make the payments system faster and more secure – an issue on which the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston is leading – and has met with Fed staff to discuss the strategy for achieving more secure payments. The association in December shared how credit unions could benefit from faster payments services, and the Fed has launched an initiative among industry stakeholders to help improve payments security.
NAFCU and its Board of Directors meet annually with the Federal Reserve to present findings from the association's Report on Credit Unions and to discuss issues critical to the credit union industry. The group met with Federal Reserve Vice Chairman of Supervision Randal Quarles in November; see a recap of the discussion here.
