Credit Union Leaders Present Financial Education Resources Center
For the first time, five national financial education providers are coming together to present a Financial Education Resources Center at the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference.

“All of our missions align around providing financial education,” said Delfin. “To carry on this cooperative movement, we must collectively promote financial literacy for Millennials and the next generations of credit union members.”
At the Washington Convention Center from February 22-25, 2009, the Financial Education Resources Center will feature adjacent booths in the Exhibit Hall with resources from these providers:
The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) supplies a turn-key curriculum for credit union educators to teach financial planning in high schools.
NEFE is also bringing financial education into workplaces to reach young adults and at-risk workers.
The National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) provides a platform for credit union educators to report on presentations to classrooms and other youth events.
NYIB also shares marketing materials to help credit unions attract youth.
