Northwest credit union professionals taught financial basics to at least 65,000 people last year. Pooling presentation resources, partnering with other community organizations and sharing models for working with school districts will elevate that already strong performance. A Best Practices Roundtable June 25 will set those goals in motion.
Even with the hundreds of hours credit unions typically contribute to touching the lives of students, an NWCUA Financial Education Committee survey showed, resources are a barrier to credit union professionals who want to do more. The committee will provide turnkey resources and financial education models during two best practice roundtable events this summer.
Open to credit union CEOs and senior management, an upcoming NWCUA event offers high-level economic forecasts, networking with peers and Association staff, and updates on innovation and technology to help credit unions stay ahead of the curve.
In the financial services cooperative world, there are many common threads: an emphasis on member service and social responsibility and the burden of over-regulation. Because these challenges can be even greater for small credit unions, the NWCUA will offer solutions at three regional roundtables.
