Connecting the Dots through Financial Education

April 24, 2018 | 2:00pm - 2:30 pm EST

About the Webinar

Your members want to get from Point A to Point B, but they don't always know how to get there. They may also need help figuring out what comes next. Financial education shows your members the right path to take to create the financial picture they want. Education can also help unbanked and underbanked consumers in your community make the connection between your credit union and all the life goals they want to reach.

You'll learn:

  • How to create awareness about the importance of financial literacy among members and community
  • What tools your credit union can offer to help members move forward in achieving their goals
  • The right approach to engage youth so they can start building financial literacy as early as possible
  • How financial education can help increase product engagement, retention and new member acquisition.
