Special Webinar on Feb. 11 for Juntos Avanzamos Credit Unions
Wednesday, February 10, 2016 6:25 AM

In keeping with Financial Education Week, the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is offering a special webinar to Juntos Avanzamos credit unions. This webinar provides a unique opportunity for collaboration with your local Mexican consulate. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 11, at 11:00 CST.

If you are a Juntos Avanzamos credit union, you are cordially invited to learn about the Semana de Educación Financiera (SEF), an initiative led by the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores through the Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior (IME) in partnership with Mexican government agencies, the network of Mexican Consulates in the US and Canada, and local public and private entities. The Federation has collaborated for years with the IME and the network of Mexican consulates.

This effort also seeks to educate the Mexican community about the importance of financial inclusion as a tool to facilitate economic integration and asset building opportunities, both for the established Mexican community and for the immigrant population.

The national expansion of Juntos Avanzamos provides a unique opportunity to bring this collaboration to the next level. Hope you can join us!

Your guest speakers:

  • Soria Orozco Aguirre. With more than 25 years of experience in the field of developing programs aimed to empower the Mexican immigrant communities abroad, Aguirre is director for economic/financial affairs and responsible for the Mexican Global Network of Mexican highly qualified expats (Red Global MX) at Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME).
  • Julián Escutia Rodriguez. Escutia has been a career diplomat since 2005. He is currently head of the consular coordination and Hispanic affairs section at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, DC.

Mexico’s Consular Network in the US plays a broad role in providing education to the Mexican community in the US. One of these areas of focus is the promotion of financial inclusion, which is done through promoting financial education opportunities and facilitating connections with financial institutions interested in meeting the needs of this population.
