The National Credit Union Foundation is hosting a Twitter chat for credit unions at 3 p.m. (CT) Aug. 18. The Foundation invites credit unions to discuss their activities to improve the financial health of staff and members.
“Financial health is a term used to describe the state of one’s personal financial situation,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation director of communications. “Improving financial health is at the core of what credit unions do every day and they are doing a great job. However, according to Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI), 57% of Americans--roughly 138 million adults--are struggling financially, so clearly there is more work to be done.”
During the Twitter chat, credit unions and their staff are encouraged to share best practices and examples of their efforts to improve the financial health of members and staff including programs, products, education, services, measurement, nonprofit involvement and more. CFSI will be featured in the Twitter chat as a special guest.
