Do you have events planned for Financial Well-being Month or CUNA Youth Month or want to highlight your credit union’s ongoing efforts? April is an opportunity for credit unions to demonstrate their commitment to providing financial education to their members and communities.
At CUNA GAC last week, Ryan Donovan, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan shared how improving members’ financial well-being is a core component of credit union advocacy.
“Our greatest advocacy advantage isn’t our proximity to lawmakers, it’s the impact all credit unions have on their constituents,” he says. “Improving financial well-being and advancing the communities we serve is core to the credit union mission, and it’s critical to our advocacy work because it is the lens through which we must get policymakers to look when considering our priorities."
Credit unions are encouraged to share their plans for Financial Well-being Month or financial education success stories with the Minnesota Credit Union Network by contacting Director of Communications Julia Miller by email by March 28, 2022. If you don’t have plans yet, consider celebrating Youth Month with CUNA’s ready-to-implement resources.
CUNA Youth Month
Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union™, and one day you may have enough to fulfill a financial dream!
That’s the message credit unions should convey to younger and future members during April. It’s National Credit Union Youth Month when credit unions across the nation help teach and encourage kids to develop good financial habits.
