(October 25, 2007 – New York, NY) NCUA Board Chairman JoAnn Johnson has confirmed her attendance for the upcoming 6th Annual Financial Literacy Day: Best Practices Forum being organized by the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (Federation) on October 29 at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
“This is the first time our Financial Literacy Day is being held outside of New York City,” explained Pamela Owens, the Federation’s Education and Training Director. “We made the switch this year because our members and partners in San Francisco were extremely interested in hosting the event, and we felt it would be important to highlight some of the financial literacy best practices of credit unions in this part of the country. We’re especially glad to have Chairman Johnson’s participation,” Owens added. “She has been a strong supporter of our financial literacy initiatives in the past and understands the truly important role credit unions play in this area.”
More than 100 attendees are expected to attend the event, which was organized with support from CDCUs, Mission Area FCU (San Francisco, CA) and Community Trust CU (Modesto, CA); the California Low Income Credit Union Network; the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues; and Federation Community Development Partner, Patelco CU (San Francisco, CA).
The Federation will also take this opportunity to showcase a newly finalized video titled, Credit Union Partnerships: Building Bridges to the Underserved. This 17-minute video documents the highly successful partnership between the $4.3 billion in assets Patelco CU and two San Francisco CDCUs, Mission Area FCU and Northeast Community FCU.
Registration for the event is near capacity. For more information, please contact Daniel Apfel at email@example.com, or at (212) 809-1850, x 220.
