The Disclosures to Perform Music from New Album at FOCUS Summit
Friday, January 24, 2014 6:50 AM

Christopher Morris from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) and Chad Helminak from the Wisconsin Credit Union League travel the country singing about credit unions and financial education as musicians with a mission, known as The Disclosures. The duo released their first credit union-themed songs “Hey, We’re The Disclosures,” in 2011. And on Feb. 6, at the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation’s FOCUS Summit in Dallas, The Disclosures will perform music from their new youth financial education album, “The Secret to Being Rich.”

The band was an outgrowth of NCUF’s Development Education (DE) training program—which has been providing lessons in cooperative principles, credit union philosophy, and member-centric business models for more than 30 years. Both went through the training. Both were inspired.

To hear music from their new youth financial education album, register now to attend the Foundation FOCUS Summit Feb. 6-7 at the Doubletree Galleria Hotel in Dallas. Jean Chatzky, acclaimed author and financial editor for NBC’s “Today” show. Chatzky is headlining the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation’s FOCUS Summit Feb. 6-7 in Dallas.

This two-day summit addresses the financial literacy problem in our country, and is an opportunity for financial education advocates to network, share best practices, learn about available resources, as well as explore proven techniques and strategies for deploying financial education into their local schools and communities.

In addition to Chatzky, the Feb. 6-7 FOCUS Summit offers:

  • A best-practice panel discussion with a local superintendent, principals, and teachers that will focus on how credit unions can enter schools, sustain the relationship, and remain relevant.
  • A Life Simulation facilitated by Lois Kitsch, REAL Solutions national program manager with the National Credit Union Foundation. A Life Simulation is designed to help participants better understand the difficulties faced by families living in poverty.
  • An overview of financial education tools available to credit unions and educators, including the National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program, BizKid$, FamilyMint, Sammy the Savings Rabbit, Money Mammals, and more.
