WASHINGTON (4/18/14)--Interested in sharing best practices for helping members increase their financial literacy? The National Credit Union Administration has set an April 23 Twitter chat on the issue.
The NCUA Financial Literacy Twitter chat is scheduled to take place between 11 a.m. and noon ET. The event will be hosted by Kenneth Worthey, financial literacy and outreach analyst with NCUA's Office of Consumer Protection.
Followers can take part in the conversation by watching the agency's @TheNCUA Twitter feed and the #NCUAChat hashtag. Participants can also submit questions before the chat to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Twitter chat is part of the NCUA's National Financial Capability Month activities. This month, the NCUA has also used its consumer-oriented Twitter feed @MyCUgov to share personal finance tips with the public, and hosted a financial literacy webinar to share best practices.
The NCUA Twitter talk will take place during National Credit Union Youth Week, April 20-26. Sunny beaches and rolling waves are a part of this year's theme, which encourages young potential credit union members to "Catch the $ave Wave." During the week, credit unions will engage and encourage younger members to set up savings accounts, learn how to manage money and be more financially literate.
Credit unions nationwide may join in the celebration through April, or even just during National Credit Union Youth Week.
