There's been a lot of good news coming out of America's Credit Union Museum these days. First, the museum just received the Herb Wegner Award from The Foundation, so you will be seeing them at the GAC in 2016. Second, CUNA made a most generous donation of $1 million, which will fund the new "CUNA Research Center." And, third, the museum's Legacy Capital Campaign has surpassed the $2 million mark and quickly climbing to meet and exceed its goal of $3.3 million by 2017. Not bad, indeed.
To get the inside scoop on all this good news, we invited Executive Director Stephanie Smith on the show. We also discussed the museum's "CU 4 Reality" financial education program that has already benefited more than 70,000 students -- for which it won the 2016 Herb Wegner Award.
