The National Credit Union Foundation has announced the date and location for next year’s Credit Union FinHealth20 Conference: April 27-29 in San Antonio, Texas. The FinHealth20 Conference is a joint conference between the Foundation, California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues and the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation.
Credit Union FinHealth brings together leading experts and practitioners in financial health to discuss how credit unions are measuring their members’ financial health, working to improve it and documenting the results.
The conference also explores the connections between financial health, physical health, technology and advocacy.
One of the three pillars of the Foundation’s work is to ignite understanding, passion and focus on member financial health by providing tools and resources so credit unions are recognized as national financial health leaders.
Understanding people’s financial health benefits members, communities and drives growth for credit unions. Financial health is the future of credit unions’ relevance in the financial services marketplace.
The Foundation awarded five scholarships to deserving credit union professionals to attend the conference in 2019. Joy Tafarella, vice president at Cal Poly FCU, Pomona, Calif. was one of the recipients.
“This year was my first experience with Credit Union FinHealth19, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend. I rarely have an opportunity to share ideas with others involved in the development and deployment of financial health programs within their credit unions,” she said. “The conference provided opportunity to share experiences with each other and build a great network of resources to tap into for the future. I left the conference invigorated with ideas and seeds of information to build programs to aid our membership in building their financial wellness.
“The conference jump started my creativity on how to implement the successful programs highlighted by the presenters. I found the content of the conference to be very beneficial. I was invigorated with numerous program ideas to implement at my credit union to support our financial health and wellness educational offering to our campus community and membership,” Tafarella added.
