Did you know that the NYIB is the only credit union organization that maintains standardized reporting of financial education presentations to youth in the U.S.? It’s true! The reporting information is used by national and state legislators who lobby for mandated financial literacy programs in schools. Data is used locally by leagues and credit unions to promote community service efforts and demonstrate the CU difference. That’s why it’s so important that ALL credit unions that do either in-school or online classroom presentations, including Financial Reality Fairs, Mad City Money, Junior Achievement, NEFE, etc., and/or any internal programs your credit union may have.
Reporting is easy! Just visit www.nyib.org and log into your NYIB account (or create one if you’ve never reported before). Then click the report button and complete the online form. Or, if you have multiple presentations to report, consider utilizing the Excel spreadsheet provided. Once you have the spreadsheet filled out, just upload it to the site. And voila! Your presentations have been reported!
Have questions about what qualifies as a “presentation?” Check out the Reporting page on NYIB’s website (http://www.nyib.org/reporting). Or check out the FAQ section!
The NYIB reporting year runs from July 1, 2019 thru June 30, 2020. So any presentations you/your credit union did during that time should be reported.
Have questions? Feel free to reach out to, your Minnesota State Delegate, Jodi Slais or Tina Jones, North Central Regional Coordinator.
