As a journalist, I usually don’t dive into a new job as an expert on the subject matter I’m asked to report on. Instead, I become one, by reading articles and interviewing experts, whether the topic is technology or fashion. This job is no different. I went into it with only basic knowledge of credit unions, and over the past three months, my knowledge has deepened. And the more I learn, the more I realize: There really is no downside to CU membership for my generation.
