Credit unions looking to expand membership and improve service to underserved communities can get valuable help from the National Credit Union Administration's upcoming webinar, "Successful Strategies for Field-of-Membership Expansion," to be held Wednesday, March 25, beginning at 1 p.m. Central Time.

  • A business plan template to assist with applying for field-of-membership expansion,
  • Reviewing the Field-of-Membership Internet Application, and
