MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (4/20/15)--Paul Gentile, president/CEO of the Cooperative Credit Union Association, has been named to the Massachusetts Task Force on Financial Literacy.

Under the direction of the Treasury's Office of Economic Empowerment, the task force will be responsible for launching a comprehensive research effort with the goal of developing recommendations on how to empower Massachusetts citizens with the resources they need to plan to budget their money, save for retirement, and better understand their impact of the economic decisions.
The key demographic groups studied will be K-12 students, college students and adults. The task force's final report will serve as an action plan for the State Treasurer and the Financial Literacy Trust Fund Board.
The task force will convene for six months and will file a final report with the State Treasurer no later than Nov. 1.
