Share Article

Peter Orszag, controversial American economist, is a featured speaker at the 2011 PSCU Senior Leadership Workshop and Member Forum. The event, which runs for 4 days, provides an arena in which senior-level credit union professionals can discuss today's challenges in their field. Orszag's speech considers how the ideology adopted in Washington can affect the business environment across the nation.

The 2011 InSight Senior Leadership Workshop and Member Forum is currently being held at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Sponsored by PSCU Financial Services, the occasion is focused on improving the success of credit unions over the course of 2011 and is open to senior-level professionals. A 4 day event, the workshop aims to gather senior-level business leaders together to discuss the daily challenges that they face and responsibilities that they hold in an effort to make handling high-level job responsibilities easier and more successful. The event features a list of speakers, including Peter Orszag, that will focus on the issues that these professionals face on a daily basis while opening discussion concerning best practices that have the potential to improve business.

Due to recent economic conditions, many professionals have taken a proactive approach to success by investing in a deeper understanding of how the economy works, rather than simply operating within it without realizing how their contributions can both alter the industry and be altered by the industry. Orszag's appearance at this event highlights this recent proactive attitude, as his goal is to present ways in which the political atmosphere of today's world can affect the business landscape.

A headlining speaker, Orszag is scheduled to present today. As an economic professional who has held several high-level jobs both in the public and private sectors, Orszag has worked for the government and for large corporations over the course of his career—giving him a varied perspective of several different economic issues. Now the Vice Chairman of Citi Investment Group, Orszag is the former Director of the Office of Management and Budget and former Director of the Congressional Budget Office.

Orszag's presentation is entitled "An Insider's Look at the Economic Scene: What's Happening in Washington and Its Effect on Business?" His speech will prompt the event's attendees to explore how changes in legislation will affect the banking industry, their own jobs, and the companies for which they work—as well as the long-term implications that adjustments in Washington's business policies may entail.

The other 2011 speakers include: Steven Levitt, author of Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics and professor at the University of Chicago; Chris McWilton, President of the U.S. Markets of MasterCard; Stan Slap, author of Bury my Heart at Conference Room B and corporate strategist; Erik Qualman, author of Socialnomics and expert in all things concerning social media and technology; and Thomas Greve, a publisher at the Credit Union Times.
