ALEXANDRIA, Va. (11/13/15)--Credit unions seeking to improve service to their Hispanic members are encouraged to attend a panel discussion hosted by the National Credit Union Administration Dec. 1.
Titled “Unique Challenges and Opportunities Serving Hispanic Credit Union Members,” the presentation will feature four topic experts. It will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (ET) at the NCUA’s headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
“This will be an important conversation, with significant ramifications for the future of the credit union system and the nation’s largest minority population,” NCUA Chair Debbie Matz said in announcing the panel discussion.
“Hispanics make up 16% of the nation’s population, representing both a large market for affordable financial services credit unions can provide and a source for future credit union leaders. Diversity promotes a stronger society and a stronger credit union system that better serves communities,” she said.
William Myers, director of NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, will moderate the discussion among the panel of experts discussing opportunities, challenges and strategies associated with strengthening credit union outreach to these members.
