Most of us have heard of the book The 5 Love Languages. Well, ServU Credit Union CEO Nancy Williamson joined us in the Studio Lounge to discuss and dissect her ECUC Conference presentation: "Financial Literacy for Directors & Volunteers" -- a.k.a. The Language of Numbers.
Like any form of communication, Nancy says that economics, math, or anything that has to do with numbers has its own language. And it all might as well be calculus to a credit union Board who, many times, is made up of individuals who come from many walks of life -- not just CPAs. So it's been her mission to teach Boards and volunteers this language of numbers to help them make better, more informed and educated decisions for their credit unions.
It seems like this is a topic we just take for granted, but it was really an eye-opening conversation on how to help educate your Board members in this area. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
