Charlene Bauer, SVP of outreach and advocacy and chief development officer for Metro CU, explains to ACUC attendees how the credit union’s involvement with financial opportunity center CONNECT is changing lives in the Boston area.

One of my favorite parts of CUNA’s America’s Credit Union Conference, which I attended for the third year in a row last month, involved feeling like a grade-schooler again. During the second afternoon of the event, attendees were split into groups and escorted onto buses, for what I can’t help but describe as “field trips” to see business ideas put into action at a workplace or other venue in the conference’s hosting city of Boston.
