The NCUA announced it would conduct a webinar that aims to help credit unions learn more about promoting financial literacy, financial inclusion and financial capability. “The Pathway to Financial Well-Being” was scheduled for March 30 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
The free webinar is part of the agency’s National Financial Literacy Month activities.
The program will provide participants with valuable information on several topics, including:
- The link between financial literacy and financial well-being;
- The NCUA’s financial literacy resources;
- Building a successful financial literacy program based on credit union size and member demographics; and
- Improving financial literacy efforts through local and national partners.
Under the Federal Credit Union Act, promoting financial literacy is a core credit union mission, the NCUA said in a release. While credit unions serve the needs of their members and promote financial literacy within the communities they serve, the NCUA said it works to reinforce those efforts, raise consumer awareness and increase access to credit union services. The NCUA also participates in national financial literacy initiatives, including the Financial Literacy and Education Commission, an interagency group created by Congress to improve the nation’s financial literacy and education.
Registration for the webinar is required at this NCUA link.
