Student-run credit unions have become a hot topic in the state of Minnesota in recent years. Three credit unions in our state – HomeTown Credit Union, St. Paul Federal Credit Union and Postal Credit Union – have received media coverage and high praise for their new in-school branches, all of which have opened their doors in the past two years.
To provide insight into the process, the Minnesota Credit Union Network and Minnesota Credit Union Foundation held an educational session for credit unions to discuss the topic on Wednesday, June 19. The session included an economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis who discussed his experience with in-school financial institutions elsewhere, followed by discussion from Minnesota credit unions sharing their experiences of establishing student credit unions. The session will also provide resources that outline the process – from research to hiring, marketing to tracking.
Best for: Business Development, Senior Staff, Volunteers, and CEOs.
