The Credit Union Association of Colorado/Wyoming said Monday it has expanded its web-based "Foolproof" financial literacy package, now being used by U.S. school teachers and endorsed by consumer groups, to include the Illinois Credit Union League.
The Illinois group becomes the seventh trade group to sign up for the turkey consumer advocacy program of video-driven products aimed at CU constituencies from high school students to adults.
"FoolProof is not just a marketing campaign," said Dan Plauda, ICUL president/chief executive officer. "FoolProof is about critical, yet objective information that credit unions can provide and that members will trust."
Apart from CUAC, FoolProof said it has now partnered with these state trade groups: Mid-America Credit Union Association, of North and South Dakota.; the Maryland & DC Credit Union Association, Virginia Credit Union League, Credit Union Association of New York and the Maine Credit Union League.
