This is a Beyond the Podium Session

When life happens, financial access is vital. Do you know where your members turn for cash when there are more months than money or unexpected expenses arise? It should be your credit union, not a payday lender.

During this session, we’ll discuss the important role credit unions play in protecting their members’ financial futures, driving financial inclusion, and improving the well-being of underserved communities.

Audience Takeaways:

  • Why financial inclusion matters.
  • How relationship-based, small-dollar lending plays a part.
  • What your credit union can do to better serve those who are underserved.
  • How this could impact your credit union’s future success.
