The National Credit Union Foundation wrapped its annual CU FinHealth19 conference last weekend in Las Vegas, the fourth year the Foundation has brought together industry experts and practitioners to address ways credit unions can continue to play a significant role in their members’ financial health.
“Putting members’ financial health at the center of credit unions’ strategy is what the CU FinHealth conference is all about,” noted Gigi Hyland, executive director of the National Credit Union Foundation. “We talked about measuring, operationalizing and documenting financial health so it benefits members, communities and drives growth for credit unions. Financial health is the future of credit unions’ relevance in the financial services marketplace.”
The conference also explored the connections between financial health, physical health, technology and advocacy. Discussions addressed multi-sector solutions to address the drivers of financial health, and how credit unions could learn from each other’s financial health efforts, explore strategies for engaging new partners, and leverage technology to further advance financial health.
Highlights of the conference’s session include:
CU FinHealth19 was co-hosted by the Foundation, the California & Nevada Credit Union Leagues and BALANCE. The conference was sponsored by PSCU and EverFi.
