We believe financial literacy is more than just book learning. It comes from the interactions Board members have with each other and with credit union teams. It comes with the confidence you gain from experience, education, and perseverance as a volunteer. That’s why we put together this video series on Financial Literacy.
This series is intended either to start you on the journey, or to confirm where you are as a competent, experienced credit union volunteer.
The average volunteer spends less than 40 hours a year as a Board member, so every hour is precious. A credit union CEO needs to respect that. That’s why we designed this series to be very straightforward. It’s an open book test. And it’s short enough so it can be a group process during your regular Board meetings.
Why would our CUSO invest in a series like this? Why would we offer it to the market for free? It’s simple: without confident and dedicated volunteers, our industry ceases to exist.
