Take Your Financial Ed, Youth Marketing Programs to the Next Level
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 6:25 AM

Has your credit union been looking for new ideas to revamp your youth accounts or your youth and family marketing program? Do you want to infuse your financial education program with new energy and new resources? The 2016 NYIB conference might just be the place for you.

The 2016 National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) Conference is being held July 26-29 in San Antonio, Texas. The NYIB is a national credit union network made up of credit union professionals who are involved with financial education, youth marketing, in-school branches, and financial reality fairs. The annual conference focuses on each of these areas. Attendees will take away key ideas to help develop or freshen up their programs.

“After attending the 2015 NYIB Conference, I felt reenergized," said Tabatha Thurman, financial education specialist, WEOKIE Credit Union. "I was able to bring back ideas to not only my department, but to my credit union. In my role as a financial education specialist at WEOKIE Credit Union, I help train teachers to teach financial literacy. I was able to pass the skills I obtained at NYIB to many teachers that make an everyday impact on Oklahoma students. Because of the knowledge I gained at the conference, my credit union was able to put our first Reality Fair to over 100 high school students. I met so many great people at the conference. I look forward to attending the NYIB conferences for years to come. I love being a part of the NYIB Family.”

The annual conference also features the annual business meeting and an awards ceremony which recognizes the top individuals and credit unions in financial education (based on reported presentations). The NYIB also hosts a listserv and a platform for reporting financial education presentations made to youth.
