Since President Obama's recent announcement on immigration reform, there have been a couple of organizations that have been very busy helping credit unions prep for a possible onslaught of new members -- 5.5 million of them.
Coopera Consulting's President Miriam De Dios and National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions Director of Membership Pablo DeFilippi joins us to discuss the massive growth and financial leadership opportunity this reform has for credit unions. Both organizations have embarked on national campaign of events they have planned to help promote their initiative to reach immigrants through credit unions. Here are those events...
• Immigration Executive Order and Financial Inclusion Webinar: Part 1 - January 13, 2015
• Financial Inclusion for Immigrant Consumers: LA Roundtable - January 16, 2015 in LA, CA
• Immigration Executive Order and Financial Inclusion Webinar: Part 2 - February 11, 2015
In addition, Coopera and the Federation are asking credit union leaders to take part in a brief survey designed to get a bead on the movement's readiness to serve immigrants today. Credit unions can click on surveymonkey.com to complete the survey.
So watch the interview and let us know your thoughts -- and don't forget to participate.
