The Foundation Executive Director Gigi Hyland joins us on the show to emphasize how important financial education is for today's consumers -- and credit unions are the ones to deliver it because that's simply what we do. Gigi cites two drivers of this continuing effort: CU FinHealth18 and Financial Capability Month (April 2018).
We discussed how the CU FinHealth18 conference was, what attendees learned, how the conference has grown in the last three years (including its name change), what's the philosophy behind the event, conference speakers, and more.
For Financial Capability Month, we talked about the month's activities, goals, and how we (credit unions) can keep this financial education message and efforts alive throughout the year.
Another home run conversation with Gigi and how financial health affects us all. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
