Mayra EscaragaWith recent events like the Silicon Valley Bank collapse, credit unions have been getting an overwhelming number of calls and visits from concerned members asking about the safety and security of their accounts—and rightfully so.

At Raiz FCU, our call center has received over 200 calls since the news last month on the bank’s collapse. As a result, our team had to think quickly to create a script on what to say, which included the reassurance of how the NCUA insures our funds.

Regardless, people are worried. So, how can we address their ongoing skepticism and help our members and communities feel safe?

April 20 YP Meetup, 2–3 p.m. CT

The Cornerstone Young Professional Advisors would like to help educate you on the topic. So we’re hosting the Current Financial Environment and Economy virtual meetup, which will be educational, engaging, and insightful and feature special guests and experts:

  • Shelby Beil, CFO of TTCU, one of the largest credit unions in Oklahoma, will offer his insights from a significant credit union perspective.
  • Gerardo Paz, CEO of South Texas FCU, with more than 20 years of financial industry experience, will represent the perspective of a small credit union.
  • Economist Mike McGinnis, SVP, Chief Investment Officer from Catalyst Corporate FCU, will also join the conversation.

Don’t miss out. Please join our YP virtual meetup on April 20, 2–3 p.m.
