Our educational webinars are free and help encourage financial wellness allowing people to achieve their financial goals.
Throughout the year, we partner with local organizations to present financial education seminars to help members achieve their financial goals and dreams. Our free financial seminars give you the tools you need to make smart financial decisions. Financial education is part of our mission as a Credit Union to help our members be financially successful.
We host seminars in our branches, at workplace locations of our People Helping People business partners, and in partnership with community organizations. Our branch seminars are open to the public, and refreshments are served. Along with our great products and services, our financial seminars reflect our commitment to connect with you, and each of our members, as a trusted resource for your financial needs.
Until we can host these webinars in person, we’d like to offer you our new online webinars, Coffee and Cash, provided by our friends at Simmons Capital Group. These short videos will come packed with lots of great information. Click here to access the available videos.
